Chest Creek Mine 1, once known as Miller Run no.8, is now known as The Seldom Seen Mine. Fred Maurer of Patton opened Miller Run no. 8 in 1939. It was then sold to Andrew Radomsky in 1940. The mine was owned and operated by the Radomsky Family until 1963, when the mine operations were split between tourism and mining operations.

Today, the Seldom Seen Mine has become a tourist-only mine.
