The Mother Lode Gold Rush Guild, a historical social society preparing to serve Amador and Calaveras counties, will converge
on Sutter Creek Main Street to provide a new living history experience for the community and visitors on Saturday, February 24.
The Mother Lode Gold Rush Guild draws inspiration from the Virginia City Silent Riders, a renowned living history service organization based in Nevada. Modeled after this successful concept, the Mother Lode Gold Rush Guild seeks to engage with local businesses and visitors to foster a sense of historical appreciation and create memorable experiences for all.
"Our goal is to complement the work of other historical organizations and bring history to life in a way that supports retail and hospitality businesses throughout Amador and Calaveras counties, “ explained Kristyn Laurence, founding member. “We also want to entice others to dress up and meet us once a month for fun, entertainment, and photo ops that we hope will get people talking, enhance the visitor experience, and inspire a deeper connection with the amazing towns that make up our area."
Anyone can join the fun. Attendees are encouraged to don their own Gold Rush apparel and step out in Sutter Creek on February 24. Connect with the founding group at 11 a.m. at Cavana’s Pub & Grub (36 Main Street) and spend the afternoon strolling the shops and dining spots on Main Street.
Don't miss this chance to step back in time and be part of a unique historical experience! To find out about the group’s activities and future outings, follow the Mother Lode Gold Rush Guild on Facebook or Meetup.
