Our History

Copper was discovered by Cornish miners in this district in 1845 and a number of mines were established, most bearing the names of Cornish mines.  The most important were the Kanmantoo and Bremer mines.  Callington was laid out in 1850 and buildings from the mining era remain.  The tall chimney on the edge of the town marks the Bremer Mine which worked from 1850-1875.  Signs are located on the road near the heritage listed powder magazine.  Callington Heritage Trail
