Haunting History and Mysterious Heritage

The mine was opened in 1927 by Maple Creek Coal Company. It was only in operation for four years, as a fire ravaged the property and the mine had to close in 1931. The property is no longer rich in coal, but you’ll find a treasure trove of wild flowers and scene vistas throughout the land.

The listing agent, Mike Metzger, notes that the property is riddled with old railroad parts, an old mining generator hood, tram cables, and even a fireplace. Located two hours from Salt Lake City, this expansive piece of property is perfect for folks looking for a remote escape from bustling city life.

For the reasonable price of $225,000, this amazing property could be yours! All acreage and square footage was obtained from county records, so potential buyers should consider obtaining independent measurement. Don’t miss out on this ghostly deal!
