The Crystal Mill teeters on a rock buttress above a picturesque waterfall on the Crystal River near Marble, Colorado..The mill was constructed in 1893. Originally it had a horizontal water wheel which generated compressed air for miners in the nearby silver mines. It fell into disuse in 1917 when the Sheep Mountain Mine closed.
