Gregory Diggings Monument Gaston Mine on Bates Hill
The first gold lode discovery was made here on May 6, 1859 by John H Gregory of Georgia. The Gaston Mine shaft house on Bates Hill. Old Victorian house in middle. The Gregory gulch is between the house and the monument. Over 4 million ounces of gold were extracted from the ground here in Central City and Black Hawk Colorado. Now a National Historical District with lots of history and gaming. This spot is right next to The Red Dolly Casino.
