Old Millfield Mine

In the very early 1900s, this mine was the scene of a series of explosions. The cemetery that had only been opened a week previously in Chauncey was filled in one day because of these explosions. It is said that on the disaster’s anniversary, if you know where to stand, you can feel the ground shake underfoot, followed by muffled sounds of hoof beats. Screams can also be heard and as the fire catches up with them, everything becomes silent.
