Mayflower Gold Mill

The West once had hundreds of precious metal mills. Now, most are in various stages of ruin. One important exception is the Mayflower Mill, (or the Shenandoah - Dives Mill) located two miles northeast of Silverton. A National Historic Landmark, this wonderful piece of American mining history is open to the public. Witness first hand how the miners were able to extract gold, silver and base metals from the hard rock ores in this complete mill which processed gold, silver, lead, zinc and copper.
