FAMILY OWNED AND OPERATED SINCE 1965
OWNERS: TOM AND GINGER JOHNSON


Rated Attraction in Franklin,NC by trip advisor.com

and by Yahoo travel in things to do in Franklin, NC.
We have held the number one spot in these sites in the past, which is no reflection on our place or others. It's just the amount of people who take the time to post comments. I personally encourage you to visit with as many other gem mines in the area, to find the one you like the best.
This is our 48th season of a family owned and operated business, that in itself is the best form of rating. WE THANKYOU, the customers who have made us what we are today...
We offer Native dig only AND gem buckets with added. You can have it your way at our place.
***********************************
Site updated: September 10, 2013

FALL FESTIVAL UPDATE:
This years date for the festival is October the 12th.
