Mother's Day Springtime Event


The Empire Mine State Historic Park will celebrate Motherís Day with live music and complimentary cups of tea served in the Ladies Tea Garden. Also, visitors will receive a warm welcome at Empire Cottage from docents portraying the characters who shaped our colorful history. The gardens should be in full bloom, and weather permitting, visitors are welcome to pack a lunch, bring blankets and chairs, and picnic on the historic grounds. Refreshments will be sold outside the old Clubhouse. There will also be children's entertainment, including the Potting Bench, where they can make little living gifts and cards for their moms. The Mineyard will be buzzing with activity, and the gift shop will be open, with a variety of books, jewelry, mementoes and hand-crafted items for all budgets. Everyone's invited, including well-behaved dogs on leashes.
