"An Underground Adventure!"

The historical gold and silver boom of Colorado hugely benefited silver mining in Creede. When silver was found in 1889, miners flocked to this quaint town and mining was the sole industry to prosper until 1985 when the Bulldog Mine was decommissioned. When the idea for an underground fire station was put forth by Bob Louth, people warmed up to the plan and this resulted in the conceptualization of the Underground Mining Museum. In the early 1990s, local miners began mining a rock cliff and once mining was completed, artifacts and minerals were placed in this underground mine. The community center was built to draw in locals and visitors to increase tourism. The museum displays the tools and equipment used for mining in the 1800s and is a splendid tourist attraction for visitors curious to follow the tunnels of the mine just as the miners in the early days would.
