Gold Rush Livin' in Sutter's Mill, Coloma!

We'll be there, will you?


Coloma Gold Rush Live - Sat, Oct 14, 2006 - Sun, Oct 15, 2006

For two days Coloma will be packed with images, sounds, and hands-on experiences dating back to the 1850s. Step back in time and experience the California Gold Rush. Live history tent encampments recreate Gold Rush history in this authentic setting. Attend talks about the gold discovery and Sutter's Mill. Visitors will enjoy live music, historic trade demonstrations and a merchants market. There will be gold panning contests for kids and adults as well as sawmill demonstrations and historic re-enactments so you can feel as if you are rubbing shoulders with the adventurers and historical figures that helped create the world-wide rush to California. Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. For more information contact (530) 295-2170 or (530) 622-3470.

I need to explore my own area a little better to see what we can take advantage of for our homeschool!
