Pan for Gold At Sherbrooke Village

first_imgVisitors can learn to pan for gold while celebrating the golden days of the Sherbrooke area, at the Sherbrooke Village Gold Mining Frolic on Sunday, Aug. 20. The celebration will be held from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Royal Oak Stamp Mill. A local prospector will be on hand to show visitors how to pan for gold. Visitors can also learn about the history of the gold rush of the 1860s in Goldenville and the surrounding Sherbrooke area through artifacts, pictures and memorabilia displayed in the stamp mill. The gold rush transformed Sherbrooke from a sleepy village to a bustling town of more than 1,200 within a couple of years of the 1861 discovery. Samples of the museum’s “good as gold” recipes for beans and brown bread will be served, and costumed staff will be on hand to share information about Sherbrooke’s golden history. The stamp mill is located on the Sonora Road opposite the McDonald Brothers Sawmill. Admission is free. For more information on this event call 1-888-743-7845.last_img read more
