Crows Nest Mining Co.

  • Corporate body
  • ca. 1897-1902

The Crows Nest Mining Company mined for gold in the Crows Nest area of the St. Mary's River, near Melrose and Glenelg, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Crows Nest was part of the Cochrane Hill Gold Mining District. Little is known about the company, but property title searches reveal that the Crows Nest Mining Co. was incorporated in Maine in 1897 and located in Kittery. On 18 May 1897, Walter C. Cogswell of Newton, Massachusetts deeded property to this company (St. Mary's District Deeds Book J, p. 522-24). On 26 May 1902, the Crows Nest Mining Co. gave a quit claim deed to the property to Marland L. Pratt of Boston (St. Mary's District Deed Book 11, p. 117-19).
