Iron Mountain Iron Mine is at W4852 US 2. The mine, which operated 1877-1945, produced some 21,625,000 tons of ore. Guided underground tours through an exploratory tunnel (1870-77) take visitors 2,600 feet in to 400 feet below the earth's surface to see the reality of mining. Demonstrations show how the mining machinery extracted the ore.
Visitors should wear warm clothing; raincoats and hard hats are provided.
