“Stepping into the past............”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

Very nice restoration of a small mining town. Very well furnished with antiques and the informative pamphlet helps as you walk through homes, school, general store, saloon, and more.

“Super interesting”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

This is an old mining town that has been restored for historical purposes. You can walk through the town and view the 19th century buildings. There is a self-guided tour and a museum in one building. Very good information is given about the history of the town. This is a great chance to view a 19th century western town. Drive through nearby Atlantic City which is pretty cool too. We bought candy at the general store in the historic site which was very good.

Have been there many times. Most times there is something new to see. It gives an accurate idea of what life was like then. Very interesting.

“Step Back Into Time”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Very simple quiet historical place. I was interesting to visit the general store to look at the packaging of goods that the pioneers had to chose from. The buildings were awesome and set up to look like the original pioneer days. I could almost feel the bustle of the crowd. You can also pan for gold in the creek if you have a hankerin....

“step back in time”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Wonderful little village that was really used and worked and lived in up in the mountains. Great slice of frontier history, definitely worth the trip. I've visited twice and find out something new each time.
