Mothers Day at Empire Mine

Mother’s Day at the Empire Mine State Historic park is a special time  to celebrate mothers and grandmothers. The roses are in full bloom, the lawns are lush and green and docents in turn of the century costumes will portray the characters that owned and ran the mine and shaped Northern California’s History.  Mine volunteer, Bev Skinner says there’s a lot happening at the mine cottage.

They’re not real diamonds but what was called a prairie Ring in the day.  And all children are invited to  pot a plant to give to their mothers and grandmothers. They will also have food available.*
