Reed Gold Mine

Reed Gold Mine is the site of the first documented gold find in the United States. From this discovery, gold mining spread gradually to nearby counties and eventually into other southern states. During its peak years gold mining was second only to farming in the number of North Carolinians it employed. North Carolina led the nation in gold production until 1848, when it was eclipsed by the great rush to California.

Today, portions of the underground tunnels at the Mine have been restored for public access. Plus, discover exhibits of gold and historical mining equipment, a film about the first gold discovery and enjoy tours of a restored ore-crushing stamp mill.
