Reed Gold Mine State Historic Site

Reed Gold Mine is a state historic site and national historic landmark in Cabarrus County North Carolina. It is the site of the first documented discovery of gold in the United States of America, back in 1799. Today the site is open to visitors who can explore a museum, walking trails, an operational stamp mill, and get tours of some of the underground tunnels all for free. From April-September panning for gold is available for the price of $3 plus tax per pan. To work your own pan, you must be 8 years old or older. Younger children can help a parent.
