There's gold in them thar streams!

Nov. 22 – Arrowtown

After getting settled in our rooms, we went to Arrowtown, a village that sprang up during the local gold rush in the mid-1800's. We toured the local museum and then had a walking tour guided by a resident in period costume. It's amazing how many original houses/buildings are still around and weren't torn down. The local museum was built right over the bakery so it could be integrated into the museum displays.

The library was built only a few years ago, but its design is in keeping with the rest of the town. As it was Sunday while we were there I couldn't go in to check it out.
