  • My daughter and I popped in on a whim and were pleasantly surprised! Bridget guided us and let us explore on our own as well. Afterwards she helped us choose a perfect hike to finish the day. Thank you, Bridget!!
  • Great look at what lives at the mines was like
  • took wilderness first aid here. bad cell service. groomed lawns
  • A fantastic bit of history. Took a group of teenage scouts here and they were captivated by the photos and artifacts -- actually looked up from their phones for the entire time we were here. A hidden gem of a place to visit.
  • Really interesting historic museum of mining. Tiny, but a nice location for kids to learn about California history.
