Long Description:




Circa 1918. Copper mining near Hiram in Paulding County.

Copper mining in Paulding county had pretty much ended by the 1920's, but there's still some old abandoned mines along the Silver Comet Trail bike path. This cave entrance has been vandalized over the years but is still there for the finding.

N33 53.359 W84 47.748 is the trailhead to the mine off of the SCT.
