Bring your family and friends to this magical two-day event – as well as your wish lists for gifts. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be listening carefully in the old Clubhouse. Marvel at the festive decorations in both the Clubhouse and Empire Cottage. Meet Living History docents portraying the colorful characters who shaped our gold-mine past. Lavishly attired in early 1900s costumes, they add another touch of tradition. With live music in the dining room and complimentary cookies, visitors will feel very welcome. Enjoy more live music in the Mineyard, as well as roasting chestnuts – and old-time tales in the Blacksmith Shop. With forges blazing and hammers clanging, you can watch the “smiths” make handcrafted wares that are sold in the popular Gift Shop. Books, geological artifacts, jewelry, and mementoes are also for sale at prices for all budgets. A visit to the Gift Shop is a “must!”
