Living History Days
2nd Saturday of each month
Marshall Gold Discovery State Park presents a Living History Program on the 2nd Saturday of each month. This hands-on history day features many historical interpreters who come out to demonstrate different aspects of pioneer life during the Gold Rush. Visitors can experience candle dipping, meet the Mountain Men, chat with the ladies doing their sewing or spinning, make some rope, help the carpenters saw a log, and ask the cooks “What’s fer lunch”. Each program also has a cultural or historic theme. For more information about the Living History days, please contact Marshall Gold Discovery State Park at 530-622-3470 or visit their website.Learn More
