Heritage Silver Trail
Site 11: Larose Blacksmith Shop
This building was originally located at a lower elevation beside the railway beside the railway. It was at risk for flooding and tailing spills and was moved to the current site.
The legend of Fred LaRose, his hammer and the fox, persists to this day. Regardless of the circumstances, Fred sold his mining interests to the Timmins brothers for $30,000 and subsequently returned to Hull, QC. The LaRose property eventually produced 17,500,000 ounces of silver and 200,000 pounds of cobalt.
