The Merry Christmas Mine Shaft No. 2. Exhibit contains an equipment winch and a slag bucket from other locations.

 

The adit of the Merry Christmas Mine was used for mine drainage and ore haulage.  Waste rock was discarded on a nearby finger dump. The display includes a drilling jumbo and an ore car.

All that remains of the Merry Christmas Mill is a series of piers that once supported the structure.

 

An Imperial Type Ten Compressor and other equipment are on display near the mill area.  Johnny Johnsson is posing for scale!

 

This Merry Christmas Mine building is another fine example of limestone masonry.

Three Cornish row houses preserved at Pendarvis are used for offices and conference facilities.
