Iron Miners - Strange New England

Recently we teamed up with members from the group known as Iron Miners. Like us they hunt down remarkable history and fantastic locations long forgotten in New England. What makes them unique, is that they pursue stories connected to mines lost in the forests across the northeast. Some of these tales are connected to important moments in the early history of America. We had such a great time working with them on the Lost cave of Monroe, we already have plans to team up with them on some fascinating projects in 2018.  

Over the years of hunting down mines, they have captured many of their adventure in short documentaries. We thought many of you would find them as interesting as we did, so we’ll be posting them on our blog. Later this year we’ll be posting new videos on the amazing stories we’re working on with them right now.


The first video we will share is titled Portal to the Past: Discovering an 18th Century Connecticut Copper Mine

    Hey I’m from Vermont and in the mid to late 1800’s our little state had a bit of a ‘gold rush’, in planning on going to find some of these lost mines and was wondering if you’d want to check them out too.

      Hi Nick,
      Thats interesting to hear. Over the past year we’ve dug up information about gold mines that popped up in CT, MA, and RI. They seemed to happen around the same time giving the impression of a mini gold rush.

      We’d love to join you, but we’re based in southeastern New England, so our availability would be limited due to the distance. We’d love to keep in touch, and maybe we could plan a meet up this summer to hit the trail with you to find one of these mines, or visit one you already had found.
