The Druid Mine rests just down the hill from the looming Frontenac Mine, and near the Aduddell, Old Jordan, and Kokomo Mines. It is closest to the Banta Hill Extension of the Gilpin Tram Railroad, but does not appear the mine was served directly by the tram. Records do show, however, that the Druid Mine shipped its ore through the Newhouse Tunnel to the Argo Mill, located in Idaho Springs.

Aside from the actual measurements that this kit was designed from, not much else is known. If any information surfaces, it will be added to our web-site

Optional building note: The original mine was clad in 2' wide metal sheets.

The Druid Mine is the forth in a series of structures along the Gilpin Tram Railroad that will be released documenting and, in a way, historically preserving our past for future generations to enjoy.
