History and Archaeology Workshops 

Dig Deeper into Colorado's Mining Legacy


Thanks to generous funding from South Park National Heritage Area and the Park County Historic Preservation Advisory Commission, we are again offering History and Archaeology Workshops at the NoLo Mill site. The workshop is limited to 15 participants per session. A registration form must be completed for each participant in your group. 

These workshops will be conducted by NoLo Executive Co-Director and historian Kate McCoy and archaeologists Michelle Slaughter from Alpine Archaeological Consultants and Natasha Krasnow, a Colorado-based archaeologist. They are designed with the layperson in mind. You will learn about the history of mining in Park County and  the history of the North London Mine and Mill. You will tour the site and learn about existing features and their roles during the Mill’s operation. You will also learn about how archaeology contributes to what we can know about sites like the North London Mill.

The North London Mill site is located in a high alpine region about 7 miles from Colorado State Route 9 at an elevation of 11,200 ft. Be prepared for high altitude by dressing appropriately and bringing plenty of water and snacks.

A four-wheel drive vehicle is not required to reach the North London Mill.

Burro Hike!

We will meet at the NoLo site at 10am and will hike up and around the peaks of the North Mosquito Creek Basin with a group of 10-12 burros - all participants will have the opportunity to lead a burro! We will adjust the difficulty of the hike to accommodate everyone in the group. Kids are welcome! We'll plan to be done at around 3:00pm, weather permitting. 

Be prepared with appropriate footwear and clothing for high-alpine hiking and rugged terrain. Bring lunch, plenty of water, rainwear, sunscreen, insect repellent, and a hat.

Burro Hike is made possible with funding from South Park National Heritage Area and Park County Historic Preservation Advisory Committee.
