The Anselmo Mine Yard

 

 Once a working underground mine, the Anselmo remains intact and provides a showcase of underground mining technology, tools, buildings and the working environment of underground miners.
 
Located on the corner of Excelsior and Caledonia Streets, the Anselmo is surrounded by historic homes that reflect how before the advent of the trolley system and the automobile, workers lived within walking distance of their source of income.
 
Today, the mine yard includes historical interpretation and is occassionally used for celebrations such as the annual art and music festival in August.
