Teachers, Educators: We have a special Group Guided tour designed for your students!

On the Kennedy Gold Mine surface tour, visitors see the mine office building where gold flakes were melted into large bricks to ship by Wells Fargo stage to San Francisco. This is also where ore samples were processed to see if a particular underground area was worthy of further investigation. See the stamp and gold recovery mill, tailing wheels, a steam boiler and the huge steel head frame whose pulleys guided the miners into the bowels of the earth. You will also see the building [now a museum] where the men changed into their mining garb before dropping nearly a mile underground to work. View a historic video of the men working circa 1914, and much more. Visit the Kennedy Gold Mine and gain new insight into the complications and hardships of the miner's way of life.

The Kennedy Mine Foundation is a non-profit California Public Benefit Corporation operating under the 501(c)3 regulations.


The mission of the Kennedy Mine Foundation is to protect, conserve, restore the historic structures, and share the history of the property known as the Kennedy Mine. The Kennedy Mine Foundation works to retain the historic value, scenic beauty, natural treasures and wildlife habitat for future generations.
