Now, here’s a unique opportunity for everyone to get a glimpse into what a mining camp in the 1850s was really like during the winter months. The town will be decorated for the Christmas season and children can learn some old fashioned crafts that were done in years past.
Gather around the campfire and enjoy a cup of hot cider or coffee, along with a handful of roasted chestnuts as Columbia miners share their wealth of tales as gold seekers. It’s a wonderful time to prepare yourself and your family members for the holidays. By the way, even Father Christmas will be around to spread some joy!
