The Mining History Association annual conferences are held in some amazing historical locations around the country.  Using galleries of photos taken by our members during those conferences, we invite you to join us on VIRTUAL tours of some very interesting places. 

Getting started is easy, just CLICK on the photo or link for the tour you wish to join.  Most of the tours include a brief introduction after which you just keep following the links at the bottom of each page of photos.  Captions explain the photos. 

At the end of each tour, you will arrive at the web page for the MHA conference during which the tour was taken. There you will find more about the history of the area and some suggested sources for additional information.  ENJOY.
