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.
