"Discover Georgia's only gold museum located on the site of an actual gold strike and West Georgia's only authentic 19th century gold stamp mill. The Pine Mountain Gold Museum at Stockmar Park tells the story of the Villa Rica mines through exhibits in the 4,800-square-foot museum and intact ruins of Pine Mountain's gold mines.

"Kids of all ages will enjoy a scenic trek around the mountain on our Golden Nugget engine, panning for gold and gemstones, our farm animal exhibit, and exploring miles of trails within our 27-acre park.

"The Pine Mountain Railroad operates at the Stockmar Park in Villa Rica, GA. This railroad is an excellent example of a well cared for and maintained line. The buildings and track are in excellent shape and there is even a telegraph line following most of the tracks. The locomotive is an S-16 that used to run at a local Wild West town. The train was not running during our visit and we were not able to come back for the Christmas train. They have an active Facebook page with some great pictures." ~ WordPress
