Did you know that before the gold rush of ’49 in California there was a gold rush right here in Alabama? Well, come to Treasure Hunt at Gold Mountain and experience it for yourself! Following on the heels of the incredibly successful Whimsical Woods, Burritt on the Mountain is presenting another original adventure for children ages 3-11 that combines learning and fun. Once again, history comes alive as visitors to Treasure Hunt at Gold Mountain follow a quest for gold just like our ancestors did in 1830. Our guests will "arrive" in the stagecoach, shop in the General Store for provisions, build a cabin out of child size faux logs, prepare faux food the old fashioned way and pan for gold in the sluice....all of this and more while collecting “gold nuggets” along the way. This life size, hands-on experience will provide hours of fun while presenting the rough and tumble life of a prospector.
Burritt will integrate all of our regular festivals, camps and special events into Treasure Hunt at Gold Mountain. Treasure Hunt at Gold Mountain will be another exciting experience that kids will want to come back to again and again.
