Pretty much just a place to park while you view the stack. Since there are literally hundreds of other areas to view it around the area, it's value isn't in the view but rather a place to picnic and use the restrooms.

Historic spot, nice to go for the experience. 15 minutes is plenty. Interesting aspect was getting a feel for how big the base of the smokestack is. At night it looks nice. The locals felt enough about it to take substantial effort to keep it...More

Since it is so close to the main road it is worth stopping. There are signs telling a bit of history but not much else. It does give you a sense of the size of the old "stack" though.

Not allot to see but a great story of the old Town and it's history. Many local statues and sculptures to depict how life was in the early years.

We stopped here because my grandfather worked in the smelter. But, it is really interesting for anyone curious about the local area. Note that you cannot go up to the smoke stack itself but they have a cool monument to it in the park. The...More

Well, at least the "park" is free. It is just an exhibit. You can see the Smoke Stack in the distance, not much closer than from the highway. The smelter ruins are off-limits probably for safety reasons, so overall there is not much to see.

Did not tour, but driving by this smelting mound was an amazing site. Did not realize there was still so much coal mining going on in the country. Very interesting. Wish I had more time to spend.

You can see the smoke stack from the main road. However, once you get there you might be a bit disappointed in that you can't hike up to it. It is a bit of a distance to view it from. The history is great and...More
