Memorial remembers lives lost in the Milford Mine
MILFORD — Death in a black flood came quickly.
Fifteen minutes after the first sign of trouble and it was over. A fast moving inky mix of mud and water filled the Milford Mine. Forty-one men were dead. Seven survived.
It happened 90 years ago — Feb. 5, 1924.
It remains Minnesota’s worst mining disaster.
