Surry Mountain Gold Mine and Lily Pond
To the east rises Surry Mountain stretching
four miles north and south. For many years
mines yielding small amounts of mica, copper,
lead, silver, and gold were operated along
the ridge. In the saddle of the mountain
slightly north of the village there is a
Lily Pond some 750 feet above the valley
meadows. Often called a freak of nature,
Lily Pond has been measured to be 80 feet
deep in places.
