Badger Park was constructed during the 1930’s, financed primarily with funds from the W.P.A (Works Progress Administration). While you are here, take guided tour of the nearby Badger Mine & Museum. Descend 51 steps with your tour guide into a hand-dug 1827 mine. Marvel at the small side tunnels and wonder how men could crawl into such confined laces and still work. See the recreated shops and exhibits of the early mining town. Gaze at the early mining tools, ore specimens and learn the methods used to extract lead with the pick, gad and black powder.
