Mayflower Mine (Telluride)

The Mayflower Mine was an unsuccessful gold producer high above Telluride. Not much is published on its history, but the site has some interesting remnants. The operation started around 1890, and was largely abandoned by 1920. Something to note about this mine is that the original claim was actually called the "May Flour". The name "Mayflower" may have been attached to it later.
