A magical way to spend the day!
Sunday, May 14, 2017
Special Activities from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
FREE admission for children under 6 + FREE admission for grandmothers!
Enjoy springtime fountains, rose gardens and lavish, turn-of-the-century costumes. Stroll through beautiful Empire Cottage – and meet docents portraying the colorful characters who shaped our local, gold-mine history. The old Mineyard will be full of activity – much the way it was in Empire’s heydays of gold, grit and glory.
Tasty food, beverages and ice cream are available for purchase from local vendors – or bring your own lunch, blankets and chairs, and picnic on the beautiful grounds. Enjoy a complimentary cup of tea in the special Ladies Tea Garden. Live music and entertainment for children will add to the fun.
Here’s a memorable way to celebrate springtime – as well as the special women in your life. Children are also welcome to pot a plant as an extra surprise at the popular potting bench.
The prices are: $7 for 17 & over, $3 ages 6-16 and FREE admission for children under 6 and grandmothers.
