At 11 a.m. join author Joann Levy in the theater in the Gold Discovery Museum. Ms. Levy will be speaking on the adventurous woman who participated in the great American story of the Gold Rush. She will talk of the women who came west both with families and alone, who journeyed overland by wagon, around the Horn by ship, and across the Isthmus of Panama by mule and canoe. These women endured horrendous experiences, conquered their own fears, and achieved potential they often didn't suspect they possessed. At 1 p.m. visitors are invited to hear from women characters of the gold rush at the stage behind the museum. Docents will share the stories of women who lived during and after the gold rush in Coloma and in Sacramento. At 2 p.m. join us in the theater in the museum for a presentation on ladies apparel of the 1850s. Learn about the various articles worn by a proper lady and watch as docents dress Millicent, our fashion mannequin, in the appropriate layers. Visitors are encouraged to join park docents under the trees behind the museum from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for living history demonstrations and to learn more about the history of and contributions made by women during the gold rush.
