The Greatest Gold Camp on Earth!
Meet the Famous Historical Residents of Cripple Creek!
It was called “The World’s Greatest Gold Camp!” when mining was in its heyday in Cripple Creek back in the turn of the century. Bustling with miners, millionaires and entertainment, it was a booming area that was celebrated around the world because of its riches.
Have you ever wanted to meet historical people from the ol’ mining days? Then join us as we visit with interesting Cripple Creek residents who lived in those exciting times! The Cripple Creek District Museum is proud to present “The Greatest Gold Camp on Earth!” It’s a program featuring various characters who made the Cripple Creek area famous.
The festivities will begin with a Saturday night of entertainment in the Gold Bar Room in the famous Imperial Hotel in Cripple Creek, featuring such personalities as Pearl DeVere, Doc Susie, A.E. Carlton, Bob Womack, Adeline Hornbeck, Maurice Finn, and others. Music will be provided, as well as the beautiful voice of Shelby Evanoika. The Gold Bar Room will open at 6 p.m. for an hour of socializing with a cash bar and music. The program will begin at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 per person with all proceeds going to the Cripple Creek District Museum. The fun doesn’t stop on Saturday night! It continues all day Sunday at the Cripple Creek District Museum from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. where our celebrities again recreate their lives.
