100 Years on the Plateau! | Historical
A small mine north of Enumclaw was located several hundred feet west of Deep Lake near Cumberland, now the site of Nolte State Park.
The mine extended eastward under Deep Lake and operated from 1940-52. In 2006 the air shaft near the old fan house opened up and was quickly reclaimed by the Office of Surface Mining, the federal agency tasked with reclaiming old coal mine features.
