Bachelor-Syracuse Mine

-A A +A
1884. Dexter Creek Rd. (Ouray County 14), 2 miles north of Ouray at U.S. 550 and Ouray County 14

Tourists can dine here better than miners ever did and board the original electric “trammer” for a tour 3,350 horizontal feet into Gold Hill, a gold and silver treasure chest first discovered in 1884 by three bachelors. Much of the original mine and equipment is on exhibit.
