11 am run!
Arizona’s only fully operational ten-stamp ore crushing mill. Come watch the ten 1000 lb stamps slam down in synchronized precision, hear the pounding echo against the desert foothills, just as it did 100 years ago. Our stamp mill was carried down from it’s former location at the Golden Reef Mine on Continental Mountain and is the only one operating within 5 miles of its original site. Hear the stamp mill’s history and the amazing feat of restoring from nearly derelict to the pride of Cave Creek Museum! Your “experience” starts in the Museum lobby, followed by the run of the Golden Reef Stamp Mill, a demonstration at the Blacksmith Shop, then a stop at the gold-panning station. Later, you can explore the Museum at your leisure. See you there!
