Forty-Foot Openings of the Casparis Mines

Location: South Connellsville, PA > Casparis Season: Summer
Type: Mine Added: 11/06/1999
Pictured is the Casparis Mines near South Connellsville, PA. These openings were once blue limestone mines from the 1930s through 1950s, and extend up over a quarter of a mile into the mountain. They are made up of four tunnels, standing side by side, and are more than forty feet tall with the smallest being about twenty feet. The mines are a popular destination in the Casparis backcountry and are named after Kenneth Casparis who started the mine in 1916. They offer cool relief in the summer time with 60-degree air pouring out of their openings.
