You’ll Love Panning For Gold At The Unique Heritage Gold Mine Park In South Carolina

South Carolina is home to a park that features an 1850s gold mine that recovered a million dollars worth of gold in a period of less than 10 years in the 1850s. Heritage Gold Mine Park in McCormick is both a living testament to the gold rush era and the dreams of one man, Billy Dorn, who struck the mine in 1852.
