"The site also contains two mining tunnels that are contributing structures. The "Old Glory Hole" is a 60 feet deep open mining tunnel that was the center of gold mining activity at the site for over a century. The bulk of gold mined and extracted from the site came from the "Old Glory Hole." The site also has a man-way/miner's tunnel that was initially used to extract gold but eventually transformed into a transportation route that decreased the distance a miner had to travel in order to cross Pine Mountain." ~ NRHP Nomination Form
