Cambria Lime Kiln

Cambria Lime Kiln

Photographed 14 February 2015.

The Golden Civic Foundation interpretive panel at the Cambria Lime Kiln reads as follows:

The Cambria Lime Kiln stands as one of the few remaining historic facilities of Goldens industrial legacy. It is the only known surviving man-made industrial component of Golden's brick-making operations and is likely the only historic industrial kiln of any kind remaining in the Golden region and possibly in all of Jefferson County. The company and the individuals behind it had a tremendous influence on the development of the Golden area during the 1880s and 1890s when Golden was a booming town.

The Cambria Lime Kiln was constructed in 1879 and was made from native sandstone that was quarried from its vicinity. The fact that is was built from stone and not from brick is a rather unusual feature for an industrial kiln of this region. The Cambria Brick and Tile Company which operated in Golden from 1879 to the mid-1890s, built this kiln to serve its commercial and residential interests. Through its plant, kilns, and lime and clay quarries, the Cambria Company became one of the most diverse and productive industrial plants in Jefferson County and was responsible for much of the building materials used to develop Golden in the late 19th century. The Cambria Lime Kiln is the final remaining structure of the Cambria Company's operations.

Golden and vicinity

City of Golden-owned Parcels in the vicinity of Kinney Run

10 February 2019.

Kinney Run is a local euphemistic name for Deadman Gulch and is not recognized by the Board of Geographic Names. Deadman Gulch and Heritage Dells are recognized by the BGN. It is not clear what is meant by “Eagle Ridge.” It probably refers to one of the two small hogbacks near Eagle Ridge Drive; and probably sounds better than Buzzard Ridge.

Interpretive plaque for White Ash Mine

Photographed 25 October 2014.

“Recently a fatal accident occurred, causing the death of ten men who were working at the end of the lowest level of the White Ash mine in the direction of the Loveland mine. The latter mine has for years been full of water. One of the upper levels of the White Ash, which if protracted would have made connection with the lowest level of the Loveland, has for a long time been on fire, and it is supposed that this at last burned through into the Loveland, letting in the water, which ran down the White Ash shaft and drowned the men working in the levels below. The bodies of the men have not been recovered and the mine has been closed down since the accident.” (Ann. Report Golden School of Mines for 1889, p. 60)
Coal

The Old White Ash Mine was among the first worked in Colorado and was abandoned September 9, 1889 by reason of accidental flooding, supposedly from the Loveland mine to the north.

“A longitudinal cross-section of the Old White Ash mine at the date of abandonment shows the collar of the shaft to be 135 feet west of the main worked seam, and at the 600-foot level was still 39 feet west. Below this the strata become vertical, with indication of an easterly turn, so that the shaft will nowhere cut the main seam. The seam is opened from the shaft by cross-cuts, levels being driven from these. The main coal seam 6 to 8 feet thick was mined to a depth of 730 feet, A second seam, 3 feet thick, lies from 10 to 20 feet west of that worked. This has been found to vary considerably in thickness, but has never fallen below workable limits.” (Emmons, S. F., Cross, W., and Eldridge, G. H., 1896, Geology of the Denver Basin, United States Geological Survey Monograph 27)
