History of Mineral

Mineral was originally known as Tolersville, but adopted its current name when it incorporated in 1902 as a result of the mining industry that supported the community. It was the center of gold mining activity in Louisa County and during its heyday there were no fewer than fifteen gold mines located within two miles of the town. A zinc and lead mine also operated in the area into the 1970s. The C&O Depot still stands at the intersection of 1st street and 522 in Mineral.
