Abandoned Gold Mining Tunnel & Machinery, Helen

White County was an important center of gold mining and this abandoned tunnel and equipment along the Chattahoochee at Helen are remnants of the boom era of the late 19th century.

The Plattsburgh Mining Company of New York was involved in the area, most notably with the England Mine.
