Explore a Gold Rush Mine

At the Country Boy and Washington gold mines, you can find a bit of history and experience what it was like to search for gold there during the height of the Gold Rush in the mid-1800s. Most mines are closed during the winter months, but the summer tours are perfect for groups and families looking for a fun and educational way to spend the day.
