        Bohemia Gold Mining Museum


Located in the former 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.
