"Sterling Hill Mining Company:..." Sussex Off The Beaten Path Tip by feline01

Sussex Off The Beaten Path: 1 reviews and 0 photos

Sterling Hill Mining Company: Sussex County used to be home to several mining companies. This one located at 30 Plant Street, Ogdensburg, NJ gives tours of the old zinc mine shafts and has exhibits of all sorts of rocks. Might sounds boring but it's not. Wear sturdy hiking shoes/boots and bring a light jacket even in the summer. Their phone number is 973-209-7212. It does resemble Deliverance in this area but hey, it was mining country. It's about as Off the Beaten Path one can get in NJ except for the Pine Barrens in South Jersey.
