Episode Summary

EDIT
Quicksilver
In 1845, California's first mining community started up operations. Before it closed in 1976, it held the distinction of being the state's most prolific mine. New Almaden was not a gold mine, but quicksilver (mercury). Today the town and the mine exist in a county park as a registered National Historic Landmark. Huell learns all about the town and its people.moreless
