The Gold Rush Lives On At Kentucky Mine Historic Park In Northern California
The Gold Rush that brought so many to our beautiful state ended a long time ago but there are plenty of unique destinations and landmarks that it left behind, including the Kentucky Mine Historic Park in Sierra City. Visiting this humble museum and historic site feels like entering into the past where the sights and sounds of the Gold Rush still live on. Open only during the summer, visitors who stumble upon this old gold mine will have the opportunity to see an operating stamp mill and experience what it was like to be a hard rock miner in the 19th century. Sound like fun? Start planning a family field trip to this unique destination for a fun (and informative) Gold Rush-style adventure.
