Come join us during the Dillsburg Farmers Market to learn more about another important facet of local history: mining.
Geologist, Jeri Jones, will be discussing the role of mining in Dillsburg’s past and the unique geology of this area.
Additionally, the Central Pennsylvania Rock and Mineral Club will be holding a FREE kids mini-mine for ages 12 and under during the farmers market hours. Young “miners” can sift through sand to find polished stones to take home.
