To think I purchased clay all of those years of pottery making in Black Diamond.

Wilma Fineberg

Is this near the hanging gardens area?


Wilma - It's not close to hanging gardens. In fact, it's on the other side of SR 169 and the gorge bridge - about 1 mile west toward Flaming Geyser and on the south side of the Green.

Aida P Williams

This was a great read. I wanted yo ask if you knew if the Franklin mine tour was happening in 2019?

Craig Goodwin

Thank you Aida. To the best of my knowledge, the Franklin tours will happen in 2019, though I am not yet aware of the dates.

David Woodford

They generally are the first Saturday of March and April. (They used to be February and March, but shifted it for better weather.)

Craig Goodwin

Thanks David!
