Kennedy Mine Tours

Kennedy Mine Tours

Every Saturday, Sunday and Holiday
March thru October
10am-3pm
 

 During the Kennedy Gold Mine surface tour, visitors see the mine office building where gold flakes were melted into large bricks to ship by Wells Fargo stage to San Francisco. This is also where ore samples were processed to see if a particular underground area was worthy of further investigation. See the stamp and gold recovery mill, tailing wheels, a steam boiler and the huge steel head frame whose pulleys guided the miners into the bowels of the earth. You will also see the building [now a museum] where the men changed into their mining garb before dropping nearly a mile underground to work. View a historic video of the men working circa 1914, and much more. Visit the Kennedy Gold Mine and gain new insight into the complications and hardships of the miner's way of life.

FREE Admission. Guided tours are: $10.00 for ages 13 to adult, $6.00 for youngsters 6 through 12, and free to those under 6.

Group Guided tours are available, by reservation, all year. Guided Tours are recommended for an interesting, in-depth, and educational tour of the grounds [about 1.5 hours]. You may, if you wish, purchase a self-guided tour book in our gift shop and wander on your own. Some prefer to bring a picnic lunch and just soak in the ambiance of this historic spot.

Teachers and Educators, we have a special group guided tour designed for your students. http://kennedygoldmine.com/schooltours.html

Preston Castle Historical Tours

Preston Castle Historical Tours

Historical Tours
Most Saturdays, April 1 through Aug.19, 2nd
Tuesdays in June, July, August
10am to 1pm
 

The majestic Preston Castle will be open for guided historical tours. You will be guided by a trained docent through the first floor, second floor and basement and learn about the history of the Preston School of Industry. No reservations are necessary. The first tour goes out at 10:00 AM and depending on demand tours depart every 15-30 minutes.

The strikingly beautiful Romanesque style Preston Castle, on a hill in Ione, was actually the administration building for the Preston School of Industry, the first major attempt in California at rehabilitating, instead of just imprisoning, young offenders.  Opened in 1894, the Preston School of Industry became a leader in the juvenile prison reform movement by giving convicted boys a real chance at life by educating them not only in academics, but in all of the useful trades of the time.  Closed in 1960, when the Preston Youth Authority moved into a new administration building down the hill, the Preston Castle was left to deteriorate due to weather, vandalism, and general neglect.  It now serves as a vacant, but vitally important landmark for Ione, Amador County, and the Mother lode.  It is a California State Historic Landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

We also offer self-guided tours on May 13th and the June 13th, July 11, and August 8 and December 9. These allow you to go through the Castle at your own pace, with information provided by posted descriptions.  Docents will be available along the way to answer questions. 

Also available is a Virtual Tour for our mobility restricted guests which will take place on the accessible ground floor (basement) of the Castle.

Plan a visit to Ione and enjoy a tour of the Castle, including a visit to the Farm Museum. 

Guided tours - Adis$15, 12 and under $12
Self-Guided and Virtual tours - $10, 12 and under $5
All tours for under 5 years, free

Laurie William's Gallery Show

Laurie William's Gallery Show

Saturday, June 3,
Reception starts at 2 p.m. 

 

Those who love art and animals will not want to miss Laurie Williams’ June show at the Sutter Creek Gallery. The show features paintings and sculptures of a variety of animal figures. In her acrylic paintings, animals—both wild and domestic—are depicted realistically but often against abstract backgrounds that are vividly colored and patterned.

Williams grew up on a ranch where she observed domestic and wild animals, which became the focus of her work. “Since early childhood I have loved animals,” she said, “and have made them the subject of my paintings and sculptures.” In college, Williams studied art at Sonoma and Humboldt State Universities as well as the San Francisco Art Institute. The artists that most inspire her work are the great colorists: Gauguin, Van Gogh, the Fauves and the German expressionists. Their influence is evident in her use of bold colors to portray her subjects. 

Sutter Creek Gallery invites you to meet Laurie Williams at the reception in her honor and to view her exciting and unique creations. She is one of the many local artists exhibiting at the cooperative. located in the heart of.  Besides original paintings and photographs, Sutter Creek Gallery offers many affordable items including prints, cards, jewelry, ceramics, gourds and fiber arts. 

Sutter Creek Gallery is open Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 1 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Amador Arts Gallery 10.10.4.50 Fundraiser

Amador Arts Gallery 10.10.4.50 Fundraiser

Saturday, June 3, 2017
Reception 2:00-5:00PM

 

Like surprises? That’s what you’ll find at the AmadorArts Gallery exhibit for June during the 1st Saturday Amador Art Trek. 

A statewide call for artists has been out for several months asking for work that measures 10” by 10.” Not until May 31 did the gallery coordinator, Cynthia Dunn-Selph, know what the response would actually be. Certain is that the art will be from amateur to professional, all mediums, and will be a huge surprise!!  

The show’s title, “10●10●4●50” means each 10x10 work will have the same price, $50; half for the artist, and half for support of arts programs in schools. This AmadorArts fundraiser is a great way to collect work from local favorites and others from around the state at great prices. 

A public reception on Saturday, June 3, from 2:00 to 5:00 pm, will be a fun time to see and start buying the unique 10 inch square artworks and meet artists as well.

Art Trek will also ​be Saturday, June 3, a free self-guided walk or drive-and-walk tour that provides easy public access to where art is located, whether in 13 galleries or 3 businesses that hang unique art on their walls.  Part of Art Trek is the monthly “1st Saturday” when many participating galleries have receptions in the afternoon to kick-off their new shows.

A Threat Past the Pages: The future of reading & writing in the Digital Age  

Scott Thomas Anderson will speak at Hein & Company Bookstore, exploring how prose, poetry and creativity will make or break the English language in the Digital Age. For more than a decade Anderson’s worked as a crime, culture and travel journalist, writing in the center of a media metamorphosis that continues to alter how Americans share their everyday experiences. Appearing at Hein’s & Co.’s Baker Street West, Anderson will discuss the danger of our youngest generations learning linguistic impulses through hyper-abbreviated platforms like Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram. He’ll consider what happens to the brain’s ability to focus when we trade a book’s imaginative doorway for the swamp of fragmented, multi-media distractions. He’ll also look at the future of the written word if today’s writers, poets, artists and teachers don’t recognize a threat against it. This free talk is open to the public and starts at 5 p.m.  

Scott Thomas Anderson is an award-winning staff writer for Sacramento News & Review. His work has appeared in numerous publications, including Future Travel and The Irish Independent, Dublin’s largest daily newspaper. He’s been interviewed about homicide investigations nationally on the Travel Channel and internationally on Ireland’s Radio 1:Drivetime. His nonfiction book, Shadow People: How Meth-driven Crime is Eating at the Heart of Rural America, is an exploration of nation’s modern methamphetamine crisis. In 2015, his newest nonfiction book was released, The Cutting Four-piece: crime and tragedy in an era of prison overcrowding.

You can have the opportunity to spend a night in this truly scary Castle with a small number of other ghost hunters. You will have access to three floors of the Castle throughout the night with only your flashlight and paranormal investigation gear along for comfort. Experiences at the castle have included EVP, humming, whispers, touching, channeling, and seeing and recording orbs and apparitions. There have been no harmful events and no one has been hurt during these overnight events. Numerous Paranormal research groups have investigated this location and report that it is one of the most active sites they have had the pleasure to experience. You will also have the chance to learn paranormal investigation techniques if you wish to do so.

Every person in the Castel will have a docent with them to insure their safety throughout the evening.

Kennedy Mine Tours

Kennedy Mine Tours

Every Saturday, Sunday and Holiday
March thru October
10am-3pm
 

 During the Kennedy Gold Mine surface tour, visitors see the mine office building where gold flakes were melted into large bricks to ship by Wells Fargo stage to San Francisco. This is also where ore samples were processed to see if a particular underground area was worthy of further investigation. See the stamp and gold recovery mill, tailing wheels, a steam boiler and the huge steel head frame whose pulleys guided the miners into the bowels of the earth. You will also see the building [now a museum] where the men changed into their mining garb before dropping nearly a mile underground to work. View a historic video of the men working circa 1914, and much more. Visit the Kennedy Gold Mine and gain new insight into the complications and hardships of the miner's way of life.

FREE Admission. Guided tours are: $10.00 for ages 13 to adult, $6.00 for youngsters 6 through 12, and free to those under 6.

Group Guided tours are available, by reservation, all year. Guided Tours are recommended for an interesting, in-depth, and educational tour of the grounds [about 1.5 hours]. You may, if you wish, purchase a self-guided tour book in our gift shop and wander on your own. Some prefer to bring a picnic lunch and just soak in the ambiance of this historic spot.

Teachers and Educators, we have a special group guided tour designed for your students. http://kennedygoldmine.com/schooltours.html

Italian Picnic Parade

Italian Picnic Parade

Always the 1st Sunday in June
10:30am
 
 
We cordially invite you to join us in celebrating the ITALIAN PICNIC PARADE.
 
Looking down Old State Highway 49, you’ll see raised sidewalks flanking the two-lane road, with spectators claiming spots along the Grand Parade route. A lucky few have seats on turn-of-the-century-style balconies, with bird’s-eye views of giant colored balloons, trays of snow cones, and clowns bent on selling the necessary parade accoutrements – long horns, flags, water guns, cotton candy.
 
Most of the county residents who haven’t staked out sideline positions seem to be involved in the parade – on a float, in a band, as a member of a marching Boy Scout, Girl Scout, or 4-H unit, riding high on county fire equipment, or dressed to the hilt on a horse. You can be part of the action yourself if you jump into your car and follow the pooper-scoopers behind the parade up the hill about 1 mile to the Italian Picnic grounds for more fun, food, music and Italian culture.
 
The Italian Benevolent Society is the oldest independent Italian Club in the United States. Established in 1881 as a charitable institution to aid the families of the Italian miners who worked in Amador County gold mines.

Titanic Survivor at Baker Street West

Titanic Survivor at Baker Street West

A Titanic Tea!

SUNDAY, JUNE 4,2017, 12:30 p.m.

A very special afternoon will feature Titanic first-class passenger/survivor (from the popular motion picture), BARBARA CHRONOWSKI. Our distinguished guest will speak about the marvels of the famous passenger liner (including a few gossipy tidbits about the distinguished passengers on board!) while afternoon tea is served.

    Ms. Chronowski will describe in delicious detail the different fashions and social manners of the time and how it was necessary to adapt to achieve the special effect or demeanor in the motion picture “Titanic.”   

    Our behavior is very different today compared to 1912 – so this program is really a curiosity, a time capsule, a chance to experience life as it was lived a century ago:

Fashion, Manners & deportment, Edwardian morals, Etiquette of conversation, Etiquette of Afternoon Tea, And much more!

RESERVATIONS: Telephone 209.223.2215 or send a request for seating to info@bakerstreetwest.com.

$37. per person.

Afternoon Tea features scones, tea sandwiches, cookies, and fruit by Jackie Tarchala, Kneading Dough Bakery.

Tea, of course, by Mrs. Hudson, served in Victorian Square.

The second part of the Drink Pink event will be held at each of the 15 participating wineries the next day, involving food wine pairings and fun all day long.

“This event is ideal for both the new-to-wine taster as well as the experienced folks because the wide range of Rosé styles in Amador will compliment all tastes”, said Beth Jones, owner of Iron Hub Winery. “Plus Rosé wines compliment summer food dishes perfectly”.The “Drink Pink” event offers a choice of picnic boxes for dinner so the wine tasters may enjoy both local wines and foods together al fresco.

Tickets are $25 and include the Friday evening wine tasting, an eco-friendly wine glass and special wine events on Saturday, June 10th at all of the 15 participating wineries.

Tickets are available at amadorwine.com/events and are selling quickly. Picnic boxes are also available for purchase at amadorwine.com/events from Beth Sogaard, Prospect Cellars and Taste Restaurant. We ask that you please do not bring outside alcohol or food.

Mother Lode Highland Games and Gathering

Mother Lode Highland Games and Gathering

Annually
2nd weekend in June
Saturday & Sunday
 
June 10-11, 2017
 
Gates open at 9:00am
 
Scotland is coming to Amador County with the inaugural Mother Lode Highland Games and Gathering. This two-day event is great for the whole family, from the young to the young at heart.
 
The Highland Games will have events such as caber tossing (throwing what looks like a wooden telephone pole one end over the other), putting the stone (similar to shot put but with an irregular-shaped, 16-pound stone), weight for distance (a 56 pound weight thrown with one hand while keeping the feet within a very small area) and tossing the sheaf (picking up a bundle of straw with a pitchfork and tossing it over a bar).
 
Carl McDanel, Chief of the Mother Lode Scots, says the games are fashioned after those believed to have taken place during ancient times to help chieftains in the highlands of Scotland find the strongest men for their armies. The Games are played by competitive men and women from around the nation and from other countries.

If you are wanting to find your roots you can visit the Clan Village where many clans will be available to assist in that search. They will have books and information on the various clans.

For the kids there will be a Children's Glen with their own games, such as potato sack races, tug-of-war contests, they can even throw a mini caber. A children's tent will have crafts for the kids and other fun things to do throughout the day.

During this weekend event one can hear Scottish music, bagpipes and entertainment. The lineup of entertainers is The AnGry Brians, Black Irish, Golden Bough, Cooking With Turf, Michael Mullen a Trio of One, and Tempest. These bands will perform at the various stages and venues throughout the fairgrounds.

For the animal lovers there will be Miniature Highland Cattle (or Coos as they're called in Scotland), Sheep Dog Demonstrations along with other animal displays and demonstrations. In the dog arena there will be deer hounds, border collies, along with several other breeds.

Along with the competitive games and music, animals, and children's activities there will also be a classic car show.

For those who have never tried Scottish foods come on out. In our food court there will be fish and chips, pasties, meat pies and of course haggis (the Americanized version which is a “sausage of meat and oats along with some spices). The Games will have a number of Scottish food vendors along with other foods as well.

And for those of you who like to shop you can visit the Village Marketplace where you will find 30 plus craft vendors, kilt makers/dealers, Scottish and Irish candies along with English Toffee, glassware, clothing, imports and much, much more.

Since Amador County is rich in viticulture the Games will offer wine seminars throughout the weekend. These wine tasting seminars will provide you with a greater understanding of the Shenandoah Valley and Fiddletown Appellations, characteristics of various varietals, wine styles along with much more.

Scotland with it's long history in the distillation of Scotch (or malt as its called in Scotland) will offer whisky tasting seminars. These seminars will provide you with a greater understanding of the history of whisky, it's distillation process and the various characteristics of whisky varieties.

Last, but not least, will be the Living History Village where you may run into anyone from Mary Queen of Scot to weavers and craftsmen to Mountain Men. In the Living History Village one can also pan for gold, view the ore crusher and watch lumber being cut on the Gold Rush Era Sawmill.

Knight Foundry Open House

Knight Foundry Open House

Monthly, 2nd Saturday
Tours Start at 10am, 12pm, and 2pm

 

The Knight Foundry, set in the heart of Sutter Creek, is America’s last water-powered foundry and machine shop. Established in 1873 by Samuel Knight, this extraordinary facility includes the unique historic equipment and machinery, still in place in its original context, just as it was during its gold rush-era heyday.

Knight Foundry never significantly modernized; the original machinery is still powered by patented Knight Water Motors via a system of line shafts and belt drives. In addition to a full complement of tools and machinery, no other site preserves an unbroken line of nearly extinct foundry skills down to the present. These skills associated with the foundry craft are another unique element of the site’s historic fabric.Samuel N. Knight (1838-1913) and the other skilled artisans who worked there were a major, albeit unsung, source of technological invention, innovation and engineering for early California industry.

Knight Foundry is nationally recognized as a National Historic Mechanical Engineering Landmark and a California Registered Historical Landmark. The Foundry is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has been named by the National Trust for Historic Preservation as one of America’s eleven most endangered historic places.  

TOUR FEES: Adults 18 and over, $10, students 5-17, $5, children under 5, free.

Preston Castle Historical Tours

Preston Castle Historical Tours

Historical Tours
Most Saturdays, April 1 through Aug.19, 2nd
Tuesdays in June, July, August
10am to 1pm
 

The majestic Preston Castle will be open for guided historical tours. You will be guided by a trained docent through the first floor, second floor and basement and learn about the history of the Preston School of Industry. No reservations are necessary. The first tour goes out at 10:00 AM and depending on demand tours depart every 15-30 minutes.

The strikingly beautiful Romanesque style Preston Castle, on a hill in Ione, was actually the administration building for the Preston School of Industry, the first major attempt in California at rehabilitating, instead of just imprisoning, young offenders.  Opened in 1894, the Preston School of Industry became a leader in the juvenile prison reform movement by giving convicted boys a real chance at life by educating them not only in academics, but in all of the useful trades of the time.  Closed in 1960, when the Preston Youth Authority moved into a new administration building down the hill, the Preston Castle was left to deteriorate due to weather, vandalism, and general neglect.  It now serves as a vacant, but vitally important landmark for Ione, Amador County, and the Mother lode.  It is a California State Historic Landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

We also offer self-guided tours on May 13th and the June 13th, July 11, and August 8 and December 9. These allow you to go through the Castle at your own pace, with information provided by posted descriptions.  Docents will be available along the way to answer questions. 

Also available is a Virtual Tour for our mobility restricted guests which will take place on the accessible ground floor (basement) of the Castle.

Plan a visit to Ione and enjoy a tour of the Castle, including a visit to the Farm Museum.

Plan B for Barbera

Vino Noceto's Farm-to-Glass Tour Program provides the perfect platform for us to intimately share our passion for agriculture and winemaking with our guests.

This fun and informative tour program follows the path of our estate grapes from the vineyard to the cellar to the bottle, and provides a snapshot of current vineyard & winery activities. Come as often as you like -- the winery and vineyard are in constant flux.

Owner Jim Gullett shares,  “Vino Noceto strives to maintain a strong link between its grapes in the vineyard and the wine that we produce. By walking through the vineyard we hope to introduce people to some of the myriad of factors that impact how we choose grapes, and additionally how we try to use coax flavors from these grapes to produce several distinct Sangiovese wines--ranging from fairly Italian to very Californian."

Each tour begins with a short trek through our vineyard from the tasting room to the winery, including visits to the fermentation room, barrel room and crush pad. Along the way through the winery and vineyard you will try six different Vino Noceto wines with one of our wine education specialists.

Please wear comfortable (preferrably closed-toe) shoes.

Vino Noceto Farm to Glass Tour

Plan B for Barbera

Vino Noceto's Farm-to-Glass Tour Program provides the perfect platform for us to intimately share our passion for agriculture and winemaking with our guests.

This fun and informative tour program follows the path of our estate grapes from the vineyard to the cellar to the bottle, and provides a snapshot of current vineyard & winery activities. Come as often as you like -- the winery and vineyard are in constant flux.

Owner Jim Gullett shares,  “Vino Noceto strives to maintain a strong link between its grapes in the vineyard and the wine that we produce. By walking through the vineyard we hope to introduce people to some of the myriad of factors that impact how we choose grapes, and additionally how we try to use coax flavors from these grapes to produce several distinct Sangiovese wines--ranging from fairly Italian to very Californian."

Each tour begins with a short trek through our vineyard from the tasting room to the winery, including visits to the fermentation room, barrel room and crush pad. Along the way through the winery and vineyard you will try six different Vino Noceto wines with one of our wine education specialists.

Please wear comfortable (preferrably closed-toe) shoes.

Dana Gioia,California State Poet Laureate

Dana Gioia,California State Poet Laureate

Thursday, 6/15/17
Amador County Library 3-4pm
National Hotel 6-9PM, program begins 6:30)

 

Consummate poet and arts advocate Dana Gioia, the California State Poet Laureate, will bring his 58-county “On the Road” tour to Amador County for a very special free community performance.

Mr. Gioia (pronounced JOY-uh), an engaging speaker and presenter, will read and talk about his latest collection of poems, 99 Poems: New and Selected, and about his experiences traveling throughout California to engage people of all ages in the pleasures and inspiration of poetry.

Mr. Gioia was appointed as California's Poet Laureate in December 2015. The Poet Laureate serves as the state advocate for poetry and literature in libraries, classrooms, and boardrooms across California. “What an opportunity for Amador County, to see and hear this notable poet and fascinating individual. Do not miss this event!” said Meghan O’Keefe, Amador Arts Council Program Coordinator. “Make sure to mark your calendars for this one.”

Born in Hawthorne, California, Dana Gioia was the first person in his family to attend college. A graduate of Stanford Business School, Mr. Gioia rose to become a vice president at General Foods, marketing products such as Kool-Aid. These experiences in the corporate world, Mr. Gioia states, “taught me a lot of things that have helped me as a poet.” In 1992, he committed himself to writing full-time. As chair of the National Endowment of the Arts from 2003 to 2009 he launched several nationwide programs, including Poetry Out Loud. His 1991 volume Can Poetry Matter? was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award and is credited for helping revive poetry's role in American public life. His newest poetry collection (his fifth) is 99 Poems: New & Selected, and he is also a prolific essayist, reviewer, critic, and translator.

Also on the program will be Jackson resident Conor Broderick, a student at Amador High School, Amador’s first-ever Poetry Out Loud Champion, and other special guests. Poetry Out Loud is a free national competition for high school students to learn poetry, perform it, and win prize.

Amador County Library in Jackson from 3-4 p.m. No reservation required for this location.

The National Hotel in Jackson from 6-9 p.m.; program begins at 6:30 p.m. Cash bar and appetizers. No admission charge, but space is limited and reservations are required.

Docent Tours of 221B Baker Street West

Docent Tours of 221B Baker Street West

Wonder what it would be like to view The Great Detective's flat, 221B Baker Street, from the eyes of a character in one of the stories? Your opportunity is here at Baker Street West.

  • Imagine being secretly ushered into the flat by Silas Brown, horse trainer, from The Adventure of Silver Blaze. “Secret” you ask? Well, Mr. Brown has a bone to pick with Mr. Holmes, and he does his tours on the sly.
  • Fortunate you would be to see 221B from the viewpoint of Irene Adler, “The Woman,” from the story A Scandal in Bohemia. She is proud to be the object of Mr. Holmes' admiration, as she is the only woman to “best” Sherlock Holmes.
  • Eliza Barrymore has come all the way from Baskerville Hall of Dartmoor to 221B to retell her part in this sinister story of a supernatural hound, the moor, and mayhem.
  • Miss Burnet, from The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge, will relate on her tour of 221B how she toiled undercover to trap the “Tiger of San Pedro,” a brutal dictator from Central America.
  • Examine 221B with Hilda Adair, who lost her brother by way of a murderous act perpetrated by Colonel Sebastian Moran. Her tale takes place after The Great Hiatus, when the errant Mr. Holmes returns to Baker Street and to The Adventure of The Empty House.
  • Mary Maberley is one of Mr. Holmes' newest clients.  An unknown party has asked to buy her house, The Three Gables, contents and all of her personal effects. Should she be suspicious? Perhaps you can advise her.

Kennedy Mine Tours

Kennedy Mine Tours

Every Saturday, Sunday and Holiday
March thru October
10am-3pm
 

 During the Kennedy Gold Mine surface tour, visitors see the mine office building where gold flakes were melted into large bricks to ship by Wells Fargo stage to San Francisco. This is also where ore samples were processed to see if a particular underground area was worthy of further investigation. See the stamp and gold recovery mill, tailing wheels, a steam boiler and the huge steel head frame whose pulleys guided the miners into the bowels of the earth. You will also see the building [now a museum] where the men changed into their mining garb before dropping nearly a mile underground to work. View a historic video of the men working circa 1914, and much more. Visit the Kennedy Gold Mine and gain new insight into the complications and hardships of the miner's way of life.

FREE Admission. Guided tours are: $10.00 for ages 13 to adult, $6.00 for youngsters 6 through 12, and free to those under 6.

Group Guided tours are available, by reservation, all year. Guided Tours are recommended for an interesting, in-depth, and educational tour of the grounds [about 1.5 hours]. You may, if you wish, purchase a self-guided tour book in our gift shop and wander on your own. Some prefer to bring a picnic lunch and just soak in the ambiance of this historic spot.

Teachers and Educators, we have a special group guided tour designed for your students. http://kennedygoldmine.com/schooltours.html

Preston Castle Historical Tours

Preston Castle Historical Tours

Historical Tours
Most Saturdays, April 1 through Aug.19, 2nd
Tuesdays in June, July, August
10am to 1pm
 

The majestic Preston Castle will be open for guided historical tours. You will be guided by a trained docent through the first floor, second floor and basement and learn about the history of the Preston School of Industry. No reservations are necessary. The first tour goes out at 10:00 AM and depending on demand tours depart every 15-30 minutes.

The strikingly beautiful Romanesque style Preston Castle, on a hill in Ione, was actually the administration building for the Preston School of Industry, the first major attempt in California at rehabilitating, instead of just imprisoning, young offenders.  Opened in 1894, the Preston School of Industry became a leader in the juvenile prison reform movement by giving convicted boys a real chance at life by educating them not only in academics, but in all of the useful trades of the time.  Closed in 1960, when the Preston Youth Authority moved into a new administration building down the hill, the Preston Castle was left to deteriorate due to weather, vandalism, and general neglect.  It now serves as a vacant, but vitally important landmark for Ione, Amador County, and the Mother lode.  It is a California State Historic Landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

We also offer self-guided tours on May 13th and the June 13th, July 11, and August 8 and December 9. These allow you to go through the Castle at your own pace, with information provided by posted descriptions.  Docents will be available along the way to answer questions. 

Also available is a Virtual Tour for our mobility restricted guests which will take place on the accessible ground floor (basement) of the Castle.

Plan a visit to Ione and enjoy a tour of the Castle, including a visit to the Farm Museum.

Docent Tours of 221B Baker Street West

Wonder what it would be like to view The Great Detective's flat, 221B Baker Street, from the eyes of a character in one of the stories? Your opportunity is here at Baker Street West.

  • Imagine being secretly ushered into the flat by Silas Brown, horse trainer, from The Adventure of Silver Blaze. “Secret” you ask? Well, Mr. Brown has a bone to pick with Mr. Holmes, and he does his tours on the sly.
  • Fortunate you would be to see 221B from the viewpoint of Irene Adler, “The Woman,” from the story A Scandal in Bohemia. She is proud to be the object of Mr. Holmes' admiration, as she is the only woman to “best” Sherlock Holmes.
  • Eliza Barrymore has come all the way from Baskerville Hall of Dartmoor to 221B to retell her part in this sinister story of a supernatural hound, the moor, and mayhem.
  • Miss Burnet, from The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge, will relate on her tour of 221B how she toiled undercover to trap the “Tiger of San Pedro,” a brutal dictator from Central America.
  • Examine 221B with Hilda Adair, who lost her brother by way of a murderous act perpetrated by Colonel Sebastian Moran. Her tale takes place after The Great Hiatus, when the errant Mr. Holmes returns to Baker Street and to The Adventure of The Empty House.
  • Mary Maberley is one of Mr. Holmes' newest clients.  An unknown party has asked to buy her house, The Three Gables, contents and all of her personal effects. Should she be suspicious? Perhaps you can advise her.

 During the Kennedy Gold Mine surface tour, visitors see the mine office building where gold flakes were melted into large bricks to ship by Wells Fargo stage to San Francisco. This is also where ore samples were processed to see if a particular underground area was worthy of further investigation. See the stamp and gold recovery mill, tailing wheels, a steam boiler and the huge steel head frame whose pulleys guided the miners into the bowels of the earth. You will also see the building [now a museum] where the men changed into their mining garb before dropping nearly a mile underground to work. View a historic video of the men working circa 1914, and much more. Visit the Kennedy Gold Mine and gain new insight into the complications and hardships of the miner's way of life.

FREE Admission. Guided tours are: $10.00 for ages 13 to adult, $6.00 for youngsters 6 through 12, and free to those under 6.

KENNEDY GOLD MINE FOUNDATION CELEBRATES 20 YEARS OF PRESERVING THE KENNEDY GOLD MINE

The evening at the beautiful grounds around the iconic Kennedy Mine headframe includes a catered dinner, no host beer and wine, music by Double Edge, and a silent auction and raffle.

The 20th Anniversary event will honor founding members of the Kennedy Mine Foundation for recognizing and acting to keep the historic gem available to the public: Kevin Bonneau, Susan Bragstad, Bob Devlin, Rich Escamilla, Georgia Fox, Carolyn Fregulia, Dick and Dot Haislet, Mike Hewitt, Doug Ketron, Aprille Phil, and MaryAnn and Frank Tortorich.

To commemorate the anniversary, the Foundation has commissioned a limited edition 16” by 20” poster, featuring an original painting of Kennedy Tailing Wheel No. 1 by Ione artist, George Lambert. Tailing Wheel No. 1 stands three stories tall at the lower entrance to the Kennedy Mine property on Jackson Gate Road. The posters are available for $20.00 at the Kennedy Mine gift store and at the Amador County Chamber of Commerce office, 115 Main Street, Jackson.

Twenty years ago, the Kennedy Mine Foundation received the keys to the historic Kennedy Gold Mine, once one of the world’s richest gold mines, and today, a rich depository of California’s gold mining history. The Foundation is celebrating the anniversary and its mission of preservation, restoration and education.

The Kennedy Mine was at the 5912-foot depth when it closed in 1942 due to WWII, and was considered one of the deepest mines in the world. At the dinner, the Foundation will kick off its “Dig Deep” campaign with a funding goal of $35 per foot of mine depth to preserve and restore the historic headframe, buildings and property.

Tickets are $40 each, $75 for a couple and are available online at www.KennedyGoldMine.com.

Tickets can also be purchased at the Kennedy Mine on weekends, and at the offices of the Amador Council of Tourism (209.267.9249) and Amador Chamber of Commerce (209.223.0350).

Murder Mystery Dinner

Murder Mystery Dinner

Friday & Saturday

June 23rd and 24th
 
 
Like a good mystery? Love good food? Want to be a sleuth and solve a murder?
Gravestone Arizona has degraded into a lawless town run by a bunch of outlaws known as The Ranchers. The mayor, in hiding and fearing for his life, has high hopes that recent arrival Wylie Arp and his brothers and friends would consider taking over as the law enforcement in town and getting the outlaws under control, or better yet…running them out of town.

A party is underway at the Gravestone Saloon and everyone is enjoying parlor games and the delectable Wild West dinner until someone is found to be murdered in cold blood.  The townspeople come together to figure out whodunit, and surprises arise.

Enjoy dinner, hosted by the Jackson Rancheria Casino Resort, in the Preston Castle Courtyard and be part of the action as events unfold around you.  Observe, ask questions, and use your super sleuth skills to figure out “who done it?”

A no host bar will have a nice selection of drinks available for purchase.

Limited to 100 tickets. No host bar. Get yours now! Tickets: $50, available online at www.prestoncastle.com. No refunds.

Juni Fisher - Singer, Songwriter & Horsewoman
Juni Fisher's name is synonymous with the kind of songwriting that, according to one promoter "Plumbs the depth of your soul…".  
Juni Fisher gets to the heart of the horse-human bond and takes listeners on a musical journey celebrating stock horses and the people who ride them. Her knowledge of and sensitivity to the horse come through in her lyrics, and anyone who knows horses can tell they were written from personal experience.  Her first Western release,"Tumbleweed Letters" (1999) reached Monterey Cowboy Poetry and Music Festival director Gary Brown in late 2003. He shared Juni's music with other promoters and soon Juni would shift to music full time as her profession. Fisher now performs at the major festivals, and concert venues of all sizes across the US, and spends saddle time on her cutting horse, keeping her tuned up for competition.
Ticket pricing TBA. Wine by glass/bottle, and Beer on tap from Amador Brewing Co. Food available for purchase from Sutter Creek's famous La Esparanza Food Truck.

Double Wide, Texas

Double Wide, Texas

June 23rd - July 22nd, 2017
Fridays and Saturdays
Gates open at 6:30, show starts at 8:00
 
Visit the smallest trailer park in Texas and all the crazy characters that live in “Doublewide, Texas”
 
Doublewide, Texas is a hilarious, fast-paced comedy about the inhabitants of one of the smallest trailer parks in Texas, made up of some of the state’s most colorful characters including Big Ethel Satterwhite (Georgann Wallace), Georgia Dean Rudd (Kelley Ogden), Larken Barken (Devon La Bar) and the whole Crumpler family (Janet Motenko, Julie Anchor & Brandon Rapoza.) It’s one big happy life, except for Haywood Sloggett (Chris Witt), the curmudgeon from across the road, who loathes their “trailer-trash” ways. But these friends and foes will have to work together to defeat an encroaching annexation if they, and their way of life, have a snowball’s chance to survive being swallowed up by “the big guys.” The rollicking mayhem escalates as the residents attempt to secede from Texas, discover a traitor in their midst, and turn the tables in a surprising and side-splitting finale. Earl Victorine and Bethany Hidden round out the cast as Lomax Tanner & Starla Pudnehy. So grab your Stetson and come on over to Doublewide, Texas, where life is double the fun, and you’ll double over with laughter!

Every Saturday, Sunday and Holiday
March thru October
10am-3pm
 

 During the Kennedy Gold Mine surface tour, visitors see the mine office building where gold flakes were melted into large bricks to ship by Wells Fargo stage to San Francisco. This is also where ore samples were processed to see if a particular underground area was worthy of further investigation. See the stamp and gold recovery mill, tailing wheels, a steam boiler and the huge steel head frame whose pulleys guided the miners into the bowels of the earth. You will also see the building [now a museum] where the men changed into their mining garb before dropping nearly a mile underground to work. View a historic video of the men working circa 1914, and much more. Visit the Kennedy Gold Mine and gain new insight into the complications and hardships of the miner's way of life.

FREE Admission. Guided tours are: $10.00 for ages 13 to adult, $6.00 for youngsters 6 through 12, and free to those under 6.

Group Guided tours are available, by reservation, all year. Guided Tours are recommended for an interesting, in-depth, and educational tour of the grounds [about 1.5 hours]. You may, if you wish, purchase a self-guided tour book in our gift shop and wander on your own. Some prefer to bring a picnic lunch and just soak in the ambiance of this historic spot.

Preston Castle Historical Tours

Preston Castle Historical Tours

Historical Tours
Most Saturdays, April 1 through Aug.19, 2nd
Tuesdays in June, July, August
10am to 1pm
 

The majestic Preston Castle will be open for guided historical tours. You will be guided by a trained docent through the first floor, second floor and basement and learn about the history of the Preston School of Industry. No reservations are necessary. The first tour goes out at 10:00 AM and depending on demand tours depart every 15-30 minutes.

The strikingly beautiful Romanesque style Preston Castle, on a hill in Ione, was actually the administration building for the Preston School of Industry, the first major attempt in California at rehabilitating, instead of just imprisoning, young offenders.  Opened in 1894, the Preston School of Industry became a leader in the juvenile prison reform movement by giving convicted boys a real chance at life by educating them not only in academics, but in all of the useful trades of the time.  Closed in 1960, when the Preston Youth Authority moved into a new administration building down the hill, the Preston Castle was left to deteriorate due to weather, vandalism, and general neglect.  It now serves as a vacant, but vitally important landmark for Ione, Amador County, and the Mother lode.  It is a California State Historic Landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

We also offer self-guided tours on May 13th and the June 13th, July 11, and August 8 and December 9. These allow you to go through the Castle at your own pace, with information provided by posted descriptions.  Docents will be available along the way to answer questions. 

Also available is a Virtual Tour for our mobility restricted guests which will take place on the accessible ground floor (basement) of the Castle.

Plan a visit to Ione and enjoy a tour of the Castle, including a visit to the Farm Museum. 

Guided tours - Adis$15, 12 and under $12
Self-Guided and Virtual tours - $10, 12 and under $5

FREE Admission. Guided tours are: $10.00 for ages 13 to adult, $6.00 for youngsters 6 through 12, and free to those under 6.

Group Guided tours are available, by reservation, all year. Guided Tours are recommended for an interesting, in-depth, and educational tour of the grounds [about 1.5 hours]. You may, if you wish, purchase a self-guided tour book in our gift shop and wander on your own. Some prefer to bring a picnic lunch and just soak in the ambiance of this historic spot.

Teachers and Educators, we have a special group guided tour designed for your students. http://kennedygoldmine.com/schooltours.html

Juni Fisher - Singer, Songwriter & Horsewoman
Juni Fisher's name is synonymous with the kind of songwriting that, according to one promoter "Plumbs the depth of your soul…".  
Juni Fisher gets to the heart of the horse-human bond and takes listeners on a musical journey celebrating stock horses and the people who ride them. Her knowledge of and sensitivity to the horse come through in her lyrics, and anyone who knows horses can tell they were written from personal experience.  Her first Western release,"Tumbleweed Letters" (1999) reached Monterey Cowboy Poetry and Music Festival director Gary Brown in late 2003. He shared Juni's music with other promoters and soon Juni would shift to music full time as her profession. Fisher now performs at the major festivals, and concert venues of all sizes across the US, and spends saddle time on her cutting horse, keeping her tuned up for competition.
Ticket pricing TBA. Wine by glass/bottle, and Beer on tap from Amador Brewing Co. Food available for purchase from Sutter Creek's famous La Esparanza Food Truck.

Double Wide, Texas

Double Wide, Texas

June 23rd - July 22nd, 2017
Fridays and Saturdays
Gates open at 6:30, show starts at 8:00
 
Visit the smallest trailer park in Texas and all the crazy characters that live in “Doublewide, Texas”
 
Doublewide, Texas is a hilarious, fast-paced comedy about the inhabitants of one of the smallest trailer parks in Texas, made up of some of the state’s most colorful characters including Big Ethel Satterwhite (Georgann Wallace), Georgia Dean Rudd (Kelley Ogden), Larken Barken (Devon La Bar) and the whole Crumpler family (Janet Motenko, Julie Anchor & Brandon Rapoza.) It’s one big happy life, except for Haywood Sloggett (Chris Witt), the curmudgeon from across the road, who loathes their “trailer-trash” ways. But these friends and foes will have to work together to defeat an encroaching annexation if they, and their way of life, have a snowball’s chance to survive being swallowed up by “the big guys.” The rollicking mayhem escalates as the residents attempt to secede from Texas, discover a traitor in their midst, and turn the tables in a surprising and side-splitting finale. Earl Victorine and Bethany Hidden round out the cast as Lomax Tanner & Starla Pudnehy. So grab your Stetson and come on over to Doublewide, Texas, where life is double the fun, and you’ll double over with laughter!
 
Main Street Theatre Works is a professionally oriented theatre company, performing in the heart of Amador County. Now entering its 23rd season, MSTW continues to be dedicated to bringing professional and community theatre artists together to produce classical and contemporary plays, striving for a balance that stimulates both artists and audiences.
 
The setting for the amphitheatre is truly spectacular. Located on the Kennedy Mine property, patrons walk past an old tailing wheel (used when the mine was in operation), across an old bridge, into a grass-covered, terraced bowl, surrounded by majestic oaks. There the stage is set for picnicking and enjoying professional quality productions. You are truly sitting on a gold mine, enjoying theatre under the stars.
 
Patrons are encouraged to come early with picnics, chairs and jackets.
