HANCOCK — The Quincy Mine wrapped up its season in standard fashion over the weekend offering visitors its annual haunted tours in celebration of Halloween.
Patrons of all ages were guided through the haunted hoist house, then onto the cog tram, where they were lowered to the seventh level of the mine to experience ghosts, goblins, ghouls and other tales untold. Visual effects, sound design and all of the actors and actresses on site were provided by Michigan Tech’s Theater Company.
“This was the first time we went down into the mine and I got it rated as terrifying,” said Ruth Anne O’Keefe, a visitor from Albuquerque, NM.
“We just got off the haunted tour at the Quincy Mines and I hope you love zombies,” said Nancy Ablao, a visitor from Kalamazoo, MI.
Regularly scheduled tours resume again in the spring, allowing visitors to explore depths of 2,000 feet below the Earth’s surface and get a better understanding of what conditions were like for the hard working folks of the mining era.
