Soudan Mine is the oldest and deepest mine in Minnesota

Scared of small dark places? You can’t be if you were a worker in 1932 in the Soudan Underground Mine in Minnesota. 2341 Feet below the surface. 689 feet below sea level makes it the lowest place in the state. Closed in the 1960’s it was given over to the State of Minnesota for the upkeep of the State Park. It was worth the visit and to find out about all the history the miner’s had to endure.
