    Rick G Lorenz, The Wells Group of Durango, Inc., C: 970-759-3789, Rick@BuyDurango.com, http://www.BuyDurango.com: Excellent cabin site with electricity running through the southeast corner of the property. Historic old mining building is located on the property. The building, which is the tram house that brought your down from the Silver Ledge mine located further North on Red Mountain Pass. The building is roughly 18' x 22' and was restored several years ago by the San Juan County Historical Society. No longer there, but connected to this building was a stamp mill and the railroad spur that literally ran right through the buildings. There are even some original railroad ties still on the property. The mine was used all the way up into the 1940s where they mined strategic metals for the war effort. Avalanche map has been superimposed onto the plat map by the surveyor. The best spot to build would be on the flat area in the trees above and to the right of the building where you would have great views down Mineral Creek with a terrific view of Bear Mountain. Property was resurveyed this summer and we have put wooden lath and surveyor's ribbon on the important corners. This might be a great location for a rental cabin because of its easy access, electricity and historic value. Look at how successful the little rental cabin about a mile and a half north of this property has done and it is right on the highway. The site offers some good privacy, history, and very easy access.LEGAL DESCRIPTION: The Columbine Mill Site U.S. Mineral Survey #16099 B and The Wonderful Mill Site U.S. Mineral Survey #599 B.The Valley Mill Site US Mineral Survey #570B and The Pride Mill Site US Mineral Survey #558 B As mill sites, each claim contains 5 acres each, but the highway right-of-way has taken out 1.82 acres of The Wonderful Mill Site.
