“Great tour!”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

Today they gave us a tour as if we were guests in their home. They had people acting as if they were the Bourne Family and had the maids too. They even gave cookies to our grandson. It was very fun and interesting.

“Take the Tour”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

The Bourne Cottage is part of Empire Mine State Park. The docents play the part of the mine owners, managers, and housekeeper, they stepping back in time and take you with them . If you are visiting the park don't miss the Cottage Tour.

“Beautiful Grounds”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

The self guided areas are very well kept and you can spend a few hours wandering around the site. Docents are very pleasant, although not everything they say should be taken as the truth.
