The Gold Mining Camp Museum is developing a Living History program in order to bring to life a 1930s era gold mining camp in Virginia. Join us and play the part of a miner, assayer, manager, or their family.

We are also in the process of creating an interpretive vegetable garden and are in need of people to help with upkeep of the garden.
