Short Significance Description:
Grandview Mine Historic District was listed in the National Register on July 9, 1974 under Criterion A for commerce and mining. The period of significance is from 1892-1907.
Long Significance Description:
Grandview Mine, otherwise known as "Last Chance Mine," was operated by Pete Berry 1892-1901. Grandview Mine Historic District includes what remains of the mine shafts and machinery as well as the ruins of a stone house and sleeping shanty. Physical evidence, including low stone walls and construction debris, suggests that several wood structures were also originally present on the site.

Pete Berry established Last Chance Mine on Horseshoe Mesa in 1892. He constructed the 4-mile Grandview Trail down to the copper mine, and in 1893 began hauling ore out by mule. Although the ore was over 70% pure copper and won a prize at the Columbian Exposition in Chicago, the mine did not prove profitable, and in 1901 Berry and his partners sold the mine to the Canyon Copper Company, who operated it until 1907.
