Milford Mine Memorial Park
Wolford Township, MN
WSN has been working with Crow Wing County on the continued development of Milford Mine Memorial Park, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Our team has been responsible for designing detailed plans, preparing opinions of probable costs, and developing installation standards. Phase I included construction of a new picnic shelter, and Phases II and III will comprise an upland boardwalk, a boardwalk across the lake to the site of the mining town, permanent fishing/canoe launch platforms, vaulted toilet, and an additional picnic shelter. Additional trails and interpretive signs will be developed to commemorate the history of Milford Mine and the accident of February 5, 1924, in which 41 miners lost their lives.
