Holidays at Empire Mine

Living History

"Absolutely magical!" is how many visitors have described this popular family event. It's like walking into an early 1900s' Christmas card - complete with lavish costumes and decorations. Empire Cottage is magnificent - with live music and free Christmas cookies and hot spiced cider for visitors. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be listening to gift wishes in the old Clubhouse. The Mineyard will be buzzing with activity - and our smithies will have many a tale to share in the busy Blacksmith Shop. Snacks and drinks will be available for purchase, and the Gift Shop will have many unusual, delightful gifts for sale. It's the perfect place to take visiting family and guests!
