            Bohemia Gold Mining Museum

Located in the old Boots and Sandals Square Dance Barn (The Red Barn),  just across from the Bohemia Park.  The museum is a living and expanding memorial to all miners, and to the rich history of gold mining activities in the Bohemia Mining District. The museum’s collection of photographs, tools, ore samples, and other artifacts pays tribute to the area’s gold mining history.   The museum is dedicated to the memory of Guy Leabo,  a long-time area miner with a passion to preserve the history of the Bohemia Mining District.   

                                                                                                            Many of the artifacts in the museum were donated from                                                                                                                           his personal collection.

Guy Leabo was the former owner of the mine at Crystal Basin.  He was also a mining historian and a collector of antique mining tools and equipment.  A life long resident of the area, he played a significant role in helping to preserve and promote the mining culture in Cottage Grove.

This life sized wood carving was carved by Floyd Davis using a California Redwood stump. The sculpture took three and a half years to complete.  A must see ...
