Mission Statement

The Sterling Hill Mining Museum is a nonprofit foundation dedicated to the preservation, interpretation, understanding, and appreciation of the history of mining, mining technology, mineralogy, and geology unique to the State of New Jersey through scientific research and educational programs.

Description

The Sterling Hill zinc mine is world-class by any standard, and not just because of what was mined here: history was made here, too, lots of it. So too was much money. Moreover, much mining law was forged here, and over the span of two and one-half centuries, this mine and its twin in nearby Franklin dominated the lives of thousands of New Jersey residents. The economic, social, and scientific significance of our local zinc mines was felt not only in Sussex County, but in all of New Jersey and even far beyond.
