Old Victoria Restoration

The continuing restoration of an early mining village includes a wealth of historical items, located in cabins depicting the early mining days. A scenic trail along nearby bluffs offers a view of the area’s only hydroelectric dam. Nearby are the sites where the “Copper Boulder,” now housed in the Smithsonian Institution, was found, as well as the location of the Taylor Hydraulic Air Compressor. This device, which is now under water, once provided ample, reliable pneumatic power to the Victoria Mines. There is a one day craft fair on the third Sunday in August. Open 11:30am – 5:30pm Memorial Day weekend – mid October. Location: From US 45 in Rockland, 4miles West on Victoria Road. Please contact (906) 886-2617 for more information.
