Reed will highlight the 1850s mining era through living history demonstrations of surface and underground mining, hands-on mining activities and general demonstrations. Costumed interpreters will demonstrate cradle and log rockers, used to sort through dirt and find large nuggets on the surface. Other interpreters will show how blasting holes were drilled and gold bearing quartz rock was removed from the mine. The California-type 10-stamp mill will be in operation to show how rock was mixed with mercury to extract gold.

Visitors will also be able to pan for gold during the event, for an additional charge of $3.21 per pan for those 8 years old or older. Younger children can assist in panning for gold.

$5.00 for Adults, $4.00 for children 3-12
