Julian Gold Rush Field Trip & Musical


A genuine encounter with the living past.

Presenting a living history experience demonstrating the integrity, determination, and strength of the people of Julian’s 1870-1874 pioneer gold rush community. This field trip provides a hands on educational experience including participation in a musical reader's theater performance which focuses on town development, community spirit, patriotism and leadership, a guided gold mine tour, complete with gold panning, and a walk around guided-tour of the Julian Historic town site including a viewing of local artifacts at the Julian Pioneer museum, and lunch.

One day, a little boy who was old enough to read, came into the Julian Pioneer Museum and pointed to the mounted turkey. He declared, "that's not a turkey! The curator asked, "why is it not a turkey?" and he replied, "it has feathers!"

Pioneer children would definitely not have made this statement.

By inspiring the children of our time with this Julian living history experience, we endeavor to gift their lives with these same pioneer qualities of integrity, determination, and strength of spirit.
