You are right. The area has nothing now and is just an exit off the highway. I had always wondered why they called it Kings Mine exit when there was no mine there. I asked my husband one day and he told me there used to be a mine years ago. There is no pond there either so I guess they filled it in.
Someone showed me the area on a map and when they pointed it out I knew just where I was hunting. I pass it on a daily basis. I would have loved to see the old railroad station that used to be there. Thanks for the post!
