‘Ghosts of the Gold Rush’ at the next Lititz Travelogue

By on September 27, 2017

The Rotary Club of Lititz Travel and Adventure Series of the season will continue on Saturday, Oct. 7, at the Warwick High School Performing Arts Center, 301 W. Orange St., Lititz. There will be two showings, at 2 and 7:30 p.m., with musical entertainment 30 minutes prior to each show.

Deadwood. Tombstone. Robbers Roost. Even today, these words speak to us of a wild, somewhat unsavory past. With more than their share of outlaws and “lawless” lawmen, the boom towns and mining camps of the west became famous around the world. Follow the footsteps of Butch Cassidy, The Sundance Kid, and the Wild Bunch throughout the mountain west in Gray Warriner’s “Ghosts of the Gold Rush.”

From the millions mined in Colorado, to California’s historic Highway 49 in the heart of the 49ers “motherlode country,” the ghosts of the gold rush are still with us. Pony Express stations, old stage stops and trading posts, to railroads to nowhere, the West reveals its long-hidden past in the deserts of Nevada, Utah, Arizona, and old New Mexico.

Journey to see the still-visible, rich history of the West that remains, and some of the most spectacular places in North America.
