Roxbury Land Trust - Mine Hill Preserve

Mine Hill Road, Washington, CT

Mine Hill Road, (off Rte. 67) Roxbury, CT 06783. Phone: (860)350-4148. 360-acre Mine Hill Preserve, on the National Register of Historic Places, is the site of a 19th century iron ore mining complex. Nine self-guiding interpretive signs at the Mine Hill Preserve — a 19th century iron-making complex now on the National Register of Historic Places — have been created. Installed in three groupings near the remnants of the roasting ovens and blast furnace used to process the iron ore, the signs tell the story of the rise and fall of the industrial venture. The signs weave together renderings of what Mine Hill looked like during its heyday from 1865 to 1872; a step-by-step description of how the iron was mined and processed from ore to steel; a detailed explanation of how the blast furnace worked; and a diagram of the labyrinth of tunnels that lie beneath Mine Hill.
