North Carolina's Golden History and Reed Gold Mine

Due to technical difficulties, this event has been rescheduled for a date to be determined.

Did you know that America's first gold rush was in North Carolina?

Participants in our webcast from Reed Gold Mine in Midland can learn more about the history of gold in North Carolina, get a glimpse of the site's  underground mine, tour the 1890s stamp mill where gold was separated from other materials and see where visitors to this day pan for gold. 

They can also questions about this unique part of North Carolina's history of Reed Gold Mine Site Manager Larry Neal.

The webcast will take place Thursday, September 18 from 10:30 to 11:15 a.m., and though it's geared toward school kids, anyone can participate. Use the form below to register.
