Napier Mine was an open pit mine which provided most of the ore for the nearby iron making operations. John Catron, circa 1786 to 1865 was a principal promoter of the activities here in the 1820s and 1830s. Catron later became the Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court. The mine took its name from Catron's predecessors, the Napiers.
