North London Mill


6632 Park County Route 12
Park County Historic Landmark - 9/21/2017
The North London Mill was constructed in 1892 as an amalgamation stamp mill to serve the London Mine. From 1892 until 1937, the mill processed what at the time was one of the most profitable gold strikes in Colorado. As often seen in the extractive industries the mill operated off and on and saw a series of refittings, such as the 1897 renovation to a cyanide plant and in 1927 when outfitted with flotation technology. The Mill and its associated buildings and structure (London Mine Office, boarding house, stable, outhouse, tailings pond) are an important emblem of the economic history of the county and embody the characteristics of period mill architecture.
