The Becker Bates Mine Central City Colorado
Three generations of the Becker family owned the Becker Bates mine from 1860 to the 1940's. It sits on the Bates lode which is the second lode discovery in the district. Named after Captain William Bates, US Army. My house to the left was the managers house built in 1890. Not open to the public. See my other exclusive images of the inside.
