Take a candlelight tour during daylight hours at the Reed Gold Mine at “A Golden Christmas” celebration Saturday Dec. 1, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. See how miners in the early 1800’s would have celebrated the holidays and the Germanic origins of some holiday traditions that have lasted through today. The program will include demonstrations, locally produced crafts, refreshments from the Cabarrus County Extension and Community Association, and a hayride to Mansion Hill. In addition to celebrating local history, local artisans will be featured. Visitors can support local craftsmen and shop for items including quilts, lace, toys, and other products.
