Yee-haw! There's silver in them hills just east of Barstow. Them hills are now home to Calico Ghost Town, but when Calico was younger, it was the site of southern California's richest silver strike. Come hear how Calico gained its fame as a silver mining district, how it came to be known as "Calico," and how its second boom came with the discovery of borax. Saddle up and head on over to the Hi-Desert Nature Museum for a fascinating and fun lecture about Calico!
Bring your friends, or just bring yourself to our Lecture Series once a month. Speakers will present topics of special interest for high desert residents. The lectures start at 12:00 p.m. Admission is $ 5 or free for Museum Members/Sponsors. Beverages will be served.
