Gold Hill Historic Village is fun to walk through and look at the old mining town. They have events during the year when people dress in civil war costumes. These include reenactments of the war. There are craft and food fairs during many of their events. At Christmastime visitors buy a bag of "gold nuggets" which buys samples of food at each establishment; foods like Brunswick stew, barbecue, baked goods, ice cream. Every Friday evening throughout the year there is a bluegrass music "practice" at the Old Montgomery General store. There is no charge and all are welcome. During these events there will be different types of music played on the outdoor stage or in the alcove by the general store.
