Lost mines, abandoned diggings, ghost towns…

The very words conjure enigmatic images of the Old West; and the hotels and saloons that yet stand bear silent testimony to that fabled past ~ when prospectors came to gamble, find and lose a fortune, or die without revealing the location of a rich and elusive mine. Their tales continue to fascinate and intrigue. And even haunt us.

Join us for an evening of edutainment as we explore both famous and little known legends from beyond the vanished frontier. Come for the multimedia lecture, stay for the Best Documentary Award winning film.
