A tunnel connecting the two larger caves in the hill; those that Jacob vented in the rear. The vents are still extant!
Although the caves deviated little in their year-round temperature, it was common to use blocks of ice to cool beer immediately before shipment. This is the ruins of the ice chute.
Between the ice chute and the back of the north section of the cellars, a little pillar shows where a room used to be. The ceiling’s disintegration has since filled the space, which seems to be the last point of expansion in the cave–this was last carved in the mid-1840s.
Taconite Harbor’s main road, now overgrown and leading to nothing. Just asphalt between caved-in curbs.
Check that waterfall!
In the mountainside are a number of air shafts, indicating where the tunnels traced under the rocky surface.
The right portal used to go straight into the basement of the hotel, judging from the ruins.
The west portal of the tunnel is open, and if it wasn’t for the rough track, I would think by looking at it that a train could be coasting up behind me any moment. Mamiya 6/Portra 160
The ruins of the the Hubert Mine over the ruins of Nevadaville. Its ore was taken through the town to a mill below it.
