#1  Bruce Mine Park featuring the Headframe

The Headframe was constructed in 1926 by the Harvester Company.  This steel structure was used to transport miners into the underground mine and haul iron ore up to rail cars adjacent to the headframe.  Self-guided tour will include plaques to describe the various structure in the Bruce Location. 

The CBA is seeking various grants and accepting tax deductible donations.  Donations may be mailed to:
