Big Bear’s long mining history is on display throughout the venue.

They also offer gift items, jewelry, and home décor of the same.
The rustic exterior is only the beginning of its individuality. Uncle Zeke and his miners’ mule Maribelle, hangin’ high Henry, and others round the property don’t mind “posen” for pictures.
The log cabin interior appears as an old mine complete with ore cart. There’s plenty of interesting and one of a kind gift items from the earth. In addition, the store offers souvenirs, nostalgic and one of a kind sodas, candies and handcrafted real cream and butter fudge.
The Ghost Town Gold is an all time favorite. However, all that glitters is not necessarily gold. There are plenty of other earthly treasures to discover.
