Lowell-Eden Asbestos Mine
The Lowell-Eden asbestos mine, located on the same mountain range as Jay Peak in Northern Vermont, once produced 83% of the country’s asbestos and was in operation from the late 1800s until 1993. When it closed down due to EPA restrictions in 1992 everything was left as is, including the giant piles of unwanted leftover material known as tailings, and nothing is currently planed for the site.
