Celebrate the holiday season at Empire Mine State Historic Park! On Saturday, December 2nd from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., enjoy festive music and activities in the beautifully decorated historic grounds and buildings.
Candle dipping, tin punching, chestnut roasting, historic children’s games, and blacksmithing demonstrations will be available for all. Tell Santa what’s on your wish list in the warmly decorated Clubhouse, tour the Bourn Cottage, and listen to the Cornish Choir and other live holiday music while you snack on Christmas cookies. See if you can find all of the pesky Cornish Piskies hidden around the grounds!
