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

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).

Friday & Saturday

Amphitheatre doors open at 6:30 pm for picnic dining or to reserve your spot.
 
The Volcano Theatre and the St. George Hotel are pleased to welcome Mary Chase’s Harvey to the outdoor amphitheatre!

The story follows Elwood P. Dowd, a good-natured, mild-mannered eccentric who is known in all of the cafeterias and saloons in his small town. He is polite and cheerful and always friendly toward any strangers he might encounter. He has just one little problematic character trait: his best friend Harvey is an invisible six-foot-tall rabbit! (Yes, RABBIT!). Where ever Elwood goes, he brings an extra hat and coat for Harvey. He buys theater and railroad tickets in twos so that he and Harvey can go everywhere together. Being an embarrassment to his social-climbing relations, his sister and niece try to have Elwood committed to the local sanitarium, where confusion reigns supreme as to who is more dangerous to society: the easy-going dreamer with a vivid imagination or the people who want him to conform to THEIR accepted version of reality.

General Admission Tickets: $18.00

Senior (62 and over) Tickets: $16.00

Student (18 and younger) Tickets: $14.00

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.

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

Do your children enjoy the arts? Would you like to introduce your children to participating in art? We offer a safe and friendly place for children who are familiar with the arts or who would like to learn.

Kids feel a sense of emotional satisfaction when they are involved in making art. They have control over the materials they use, making decisions about form, color, etc. Building self-esteem is another result, because students are given opportunities to express what they are thinking and feeling.

We are offering the following workshops for children who have finished Kindergarten and up to grade 8. 

Class times are  from 10-1 am. Stay for lunch (bring your own) and free drawing until 1 pm.

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.

"Four for the Road" at Bella Grace

"Four for the Road" at Bella Grace

Friday, 7/7/2017
6:00pm-9:00pm

 

Summer Concert Series featuring "Four For the Road” combines the sensibilities of seasoned musicians in Amador County who strive to carve a different sound out of the foothills. With Joe Bellamy on keyboard, Allan Alexopulos on percussion, Klaudia Promessi on woodwinds and Adam Gottstein on guitar, the music that emanates from this ensemble is both fresh, yet built on traditional rhythms simultaneously. 

Borrowing from the songbook of “Over the Edge” (three members formally played in that distinguished band), the new approach to original and selected cover songs sound truly inventive in the hands of these accomplished innovators.

As an additional treat, vocalist Meg Gottstein will join the band for a couple of jazz standards!

Wine by glass/bottle and beer on tap from Amador Brewing Co.

The Volcano Theatre and the St. George Hotel are pleased to welcome Mary Chase’s Harvey to the outdoor amphitheatre!

The story follows Elwood P. Dowd, a good-natured, mild-mannered eccentric who is known in all of the cafeterias and saloons in his small town. He is polite and cheerful and always friendly toward any strangers he might encounter. He has just one little problematic character trait: his best friend Harvey is an invisible six-foot-tall rabbit! (Yes, RABBIT!). Where ever Elwood goes, he brings an extra hat and coat for Harvey. He buys theater and railroad tickets in twos so that he and Harvey can go everywhere together. Being an embarrassment to his social-climbing relations, his sister and niece try to have Elwood committed to the local sanitarium, where confusion reigns supreme as to who is more dangerous to society: the easy-going dreamer with a vivid imagination or the people who want him to conform to THEIR accepted version of reality.

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!

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.

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

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.

Come to Ione and enjoy an informative historical tour of the magnificent Preston Castle and surrounding grounds.  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 Motherlode.  It is a California State Historic Landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

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

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.

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.

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.

Workshops are in July and August
See below for specific dates
Classes held on Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday
10:00 to -1:00pm

 

Do your children enjoy the arts? Would you like to introduce your children to participating in art? We offer a safe and friendly place for children who are familiar with the arts or who would like to learn.

Kids feel a sense of emotional satisfaction when they are involved in making art. They have control over the materials they use, making decisions about form, color, etc. Building self-esteem is another result, because students are given opportunities to express what they are thinking and feeling.

We are offering the following workshops for children who have finished Kindergarten and up to grade 8. 

Class times are  from 10-1 am. Stay for lunch (bring your own) and free drawing until 1 pm.

Wood and Wire in Concert

Wood and Wire in Concert

Wood & Wire sprouted out of the rich musical soil of Austin, Texas five years ago. In that time, they've written music, recorded albums, and performed at some of the most notable festivals and venues across the country.

In the often tightly defined genre of bluegrass music, Wood & Wire's "band-style" ethos is not unheard of nor are the elements of song crafting that permeate their sound. What comes out of the Wood & Wire blend is something entirely its own.

Tony Kamel, lead singer, guitarist, mover, shaker, and primary songwriter, brings his material to the group in a malleable form. "I think I'm most proud of how we've developed our sound together," says Kamel. "It feels great to step on stage feeling like we've really found our style, which feels most to me like alt-country tunes expressed with bluegrass instruments more than anything. It’s all centered around the songs."

A culmination of distinct musical personalities, there is one ambition they all share. "Our goal is to show up and drive, so that the energy hits you, and it is undeniable," says bassist Dom Fisher.Fisher, a New York state native, formed the group with Kamel in 2011 and shortly thereafter, added banjoist Trevor Smith. Smith grew up playing classical piano

.Mandolinist Billy Bright joined the group in 2014. He brought with him a suitcase full of tunes and a trunk full of ideas.

The band began recording their upcoming studio record in Austin this spring and plan for an early 2018 release.  Wood fired pizza and wine will also be available.

 

Tickets are $15 and are available at Feistwines.com or at the tasting room in Sutter Creek.

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

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.

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
