American Industrial Mining Co.
Preserving Our Mining and Industrial Heritage
Non-profit preservation, restorations and education
We need your support !

American Industrial Mining Co. is a nonprofit organization that is totally dependent on your individual and corporate donations to acquire, preserve and educate the public about the heritage that helped create the mining and manufacturing base of America.  There are multiple opportunities for your giving.  

The general fund
  • Provides support where it may be needed most, such as transporation costs for acquiring equipment, needed supplies for restoration and historical research, archiving and equipment preservation.  

The designated project fund
  • Focuses on specific, individual projects.  The building fund helps to provide a home for the equipment and displays so that they can be protected from the elements and renovations can take place in a safe, protected environment.  

The educational fund
  • Provides services for the public and various community groups.   This includes the  live operating exhibits that occur at specific shows and designated sites.
