This is the Union Mine Hoist House, where big machines brought personnel, equipment, and ore up from the depths of the mine. The corrugated siding blocked the wind, but did little to control the climate inside. Volunteers are working to shore up the structure and clear away debris that has filled in against the building from the slope behind it.
