Highlights: Mining memorabilia from Keystone's early days 
Description:      Long before Mt. Rushmore had a name and well before Gutzon Borglum started carving the famous faces there Keystone was a thriving gold mining town.
    In fact, in its day, the Holy Terror Mine in Keystone was even richer than the famed Homestake Mine in Lead. The Keystone Historical Museum, housed in a school dating back to 1899, contains a wealth of early day mining tools, rock and mineral specimens of the area, and historic photos.
    While you're there, you can look to the south and actually see what remains of the old Holy Terror Mine buildings.
