Description:

Catch yourself some Gold Fever and be a Forty-Niner! There’s gold in them thar hills!

Gold was discovered in California in 1848. Imagine traveling a thousand miles just for a chance to find your fortune. After you arrive, you will be greeted by local miners bearing the news of the mother lode. Head straight on up to the long tom sluice, the mine and the gold fields! Get supplies on credit and start digging and panning!

Throughout the day you’ll learn about 49er life, including the feuds between the farmers and the miners and how gold was found. You might even learn the hard way about supply and demand. How could someone be charged $100 for a glass of water, and $1,500 for rent? Find out how millionaires made their money as you watch the price of gold! Buy low, sell high! Make sure you visit the Assayer to sell your gold for as much as you can!

You’ll get a break for lunch at high noon, during which you are served a light miner’s ration. If that’s not enough to fill your belly, make sure to stop in at the General Store and bakery for food items like our famous 5lb apple pie.

At the end of the day, count up your currency and participate in an auction where fortune-seekers bid on prizes for their hard work.

Light miners ration is a snack of cheese, jerky, apple and lemonade. Please feel free to bring a lunch or place an order from the general store in the morning before we start our adventure.

Notes: Please be sure to wear sturdy shoes, bring a lunch, a hat, sunscreen, a jacket, or dress in layers.
