West Texas Mining History
Chihuahuan Desert Nature Center in Fort Davis has a great exhibit on mining history in Far West Texas, with plenty of artifacts from area mines. (The photos above are from their exhibits.) Some of the artifacts come from Shafter, Texas which has its own museum (with plenty of mining history) at the cemetery. Another place to visit is Big Bend National Park's Mariscal Mine. You can read about it here.
