ANNUAL MEETING OF MEMBERSHIP
May 7, 2020
Members are invited to hear an update on the Museum and plans for the 2020 season.
Learn about the Girl’s history and the original structures still visible, including the 100-foot-tall headframe and the Hoist House, which houses exhibits as well as original equipment.
The underground exhibit is a re-creation of a big part of a miner’s life that will leave you smiling and shaking your head in amazement!
66 major exhibits with dozens of smaller items give you a feel for the kinds of equipment that were used in mining from the 1860s to the 1970s.
A faithful re-creation of an 1890s mining town, with 15 intact historic structures and approximately 35 buildings constructed from old materials by the many volunteers who put the museum together from the mid-1960s to the 1980s.
