The Kennedy Mine Tailing Wheels are great relics of gold mining in Jackson, California. When you visit the Kennedy Mine you will see the metal building protecting Tailing Wheel #4 on the hillside in the distance. After you leave Kennedy Mine head over to the Kennedy Mine Tailing Wheel park to see the size of Wheels 1 and 4, what remains of Wheels 2 and 3, and where the tailings were deposited by the wheels.

Last summer volunteers started the work to save Tailing Wheel #1. Work will continue this spring.

Here is a link to Part 1: Saving the Kennedy Mine Tailing Wheels article by Frank Tortorich in the Ledger Dispatch. Frank is one of our great volunteer tour guides.
