Crystal Mill

The mill powered a mechanical air compressor for use in ore processing. Crystal Mill had a horizontal water wheel, which turned a vertical shaft that ran up through the housing now held together by cables. It turned an air compressor that was used to operate the air drills for at least two of the local mines on the hill above the mill. Today, Crystal Mill stands as an icon to Colorado a reminder of its mining roots and the raw beauty of nature.
