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