A monument sits on top of the Barnes-Hecker Mine Shaft, where, on 3 November 1926, 51 men perished when the mine was suddenly flooded from a swamp above due to a cave-in. Of the 51 men who died there, only 10 bodies were recovered. After recovery efforts ended, the mine was abandoned and sealed, with 41 remaining interred within the mine.
