Pine Mountain Gold Museum in Villa Rica visited its historic past recently with an Old Fashioned Christmas celebration.

The museum, located on the grounds of Stockmar Park in western Douglas County, offered old-fashioned family fun with such activities as making pine cone bird feeders, listening to historic storytellers, visiting with the farm animals that reside on the property and enjoying toasting marshmallows over hot coals. Volunteers were decked out in pioneer clothing to give visitors a taste of what the community was like in its early days when gold mining took place in the area.
