Three times each summer, we offer 3 FAMILY DAYS where we operate the outdoor machinery including our famous Yellow Jacket II Stamp Mill.  We also demonstrate the 1920 Osgood Steam Shovel, The Air Trammer and the scary Mucker (the most dangerous of the mining machinery).

The Blacksmith Shop is open at the top of the Campus from 10am - 2pm. 

Tractor-Pulled Hayrides take you to around the campus 10am - 3pm.

Don't miss the opportunity to try Gold Panning  from 10am - 3pm

HISTORY exhibitors include the Gold Canyon Gunfighters, Model A Car Club, Colorado Military Historical Group and more.
