The Mineral Historic District defines that part of the town of Mineral that initially arose in response to local mining. Named for the area’s mineral deposits, the town was divided into large lots during the 1890s so as to allow for denser infill in the future; however, as the local mining industry dwindled, the residential and commercial lots expanded with gracious yards and spacious separations between buildings. There are 231 contributing resources within the district—including residential, commercial, religious, industrial, and educational buildings—featuring a diverse range of architectural styles.
