added to HOLDEN VILLAGE/LUCERNE: Ar about 4 years ago
Before these spherical panoramic photos were taken (November 2013), Holden Village was nearly surrounded with old environmental scars left from mining, which are now being addressed in a big way.
Once a mining town, Holden Village is now serving as a center for renewal as a Lutheran ministry welcoming people into the wilderness to allow them to open their lives to God and Jesus, then perhaps take that experience with them as they return to their lives in the world.
The timing of the remediation processes has allowed for an added opportunity for the Village to also renew its infrastructure and facilities. The mining operation shut down in 1957, and the Village’s ministry has been continuous since 1963.
During the major remediation and construction processes, over the next couple of years, they are able to accommodate guests only in winter months (approximately late November to May 1st). However, you may wish to apply as a volunteer to help with Village Renewal for a week or more.
