Kick off the holiday season at Reed Gold Mine, the site of the America’s first documented discovery of gold!

Walk through 450-feet of restored vein work, lit with candles for the holiday season! The Underground Mine will be open for free, self-guided tours until 4:30pm and a brochure will be available in the Visitor Center with information about each tour stop broken down into numbered sections.

Santa Claus will be available for photos from 11am-3pm! It’s free to take a picture with him and share your Christmas list with him, but donations are always appreciated.

Weather permitting, hayrides to Mansion Hill, where the Reeds’ home and family cemetery were located, will also be available.
