A former Fe mine in magnetite ore located about 3½ miles SE of Andover and about ½ mile East of Wright's Pond. Started 1850 and worked intermittently until 1870, then 1880. Workings featured 2 pits (large openings) plus smaller openings. The northern pit was 700 feet long by 25 feet wide and 30 feet deep; the southern pit was 100 feet long by 25 feet wide and 30 feet deep.
