The Kentucky Mine Amphitheater: A Hidden Musical Gem

Located just outside of the tiny hamlet known as Sierra City lies the Kentucky Mine and Museum.  A county park operated by the Sierra Ccounty Historical Society and open to the public, the park features a museum, stamp mill, portal entrance to the now defunct mine, an extensive picnic area and numerous mining artifacts dating back to the days when gold mining was rampart throughout this region of the Sierra Nevada.  The park also boasts an amphitheater, carved into the mountainside and surrounded by towering pines and oaks.  The amphitheater seats two hundred patrons, has a performance stage and a large dance floor.  

Lodging in the summer can be a bit sparse if reservations are not made in advance but there are a dozen campgrounds (including a small RV Park in Sierra City) all located within 30 minutes of the venue.  Googling Sierra County Lodging will quickly direct you to the available lodging and the majority of campgrounds can be located on the ReserveAmerica website.  Tickets can be purchased on-line, at retail businesses throughout Sierra and Plumas County or at the door.

Visit the Sierra County History website or contact Chris Stockdale, Producer, at or (530) 862-1076.
