Malakoff Diggins offers living history programs for 4th grade school groups studying gold rush history.
Our Day Program gives students the opportunity to tour the historic gold rush town of North Bloomfield while participating in a scavenger hunt through several of the old buildings. Students will experience the daily routine of living during the gold rush. School participation is free, but advance registration is required.
The Environmental Living Program is a unique opportunity for schools to experience life as a miner living in North Bloomfield in the era 1850-1880. This one or two night stay is offered in the spring of each year from mid-April to the first week in June. A teacher/chaperone training day is held each year prior to the program. There is a small fee per student, per night. Dates fill quickly. Note: This program is currently postponed indefinately while the ELP site is being updated.
