Akron Mine USGS Info
I was recently searching USGS maps and found that this is actually called the Akron Gypsum Co. Shaft. The site shows only one shaft for the area, but the mines were apparently Gypsum-Anhydrite mines. Some basic googling has confirmed that this company was a producer of Cement based plaster products.
