8. The Stamp Mill
Built many years ago to release valuable minerals from their stone prison, this mill was brought to the Alpine County Museum in 1988. Then through the efforts of many members of the Markeleeville Community, spearheaded by the two special individuals we honor today, it was restored as a working stamp mill.
