Henderson Historic Venue Welcomes Greater Las Vegas Oct 25-26

Sept 5, 2019 – Henderson, NV:  In the Silver State, what could be a more authentic celebration of Halloween than a Haunted Mine Experience? The dimly lit tangle of tunnels on their own often conjure an eerie feeling and dressed to spook, this family-friendly simulated underground gold mine plans to captivate those brave enough to explore their passages.

 

The McCaw School of Mines located next to Gordon McCaw STEAM Academy in downtown Henderson was founded in 1996, and has served as a field trip destination for 4th graders from area schools to communicate the importance of the mining industry to Nevada’s economy. As in previous years, it will be decorated for free public Haunted Mine Experience on October 25 and 26 from 5-9pm both nights.

 

Visitors will be treated to games, candy and a fluorescent rock display provided by the Southern Nevada Gem & Mineral Society. Members of SNGMS have also expressed interest in event preparation, and the organization is currently looking for members interested in donating time as tour guides for The Mine Experience presented to students and on general public Saturdays (first of every month starting Oct 5th).

 

Virtually everything one sees at McCaw was donated to this nonprofit educational foundation, and their fund-raising efforts provide free Clark County school district field trips. McCaw’s mission focuses on education about the importance of the mining industry to Nevada communities, and corresponding career opportunities showcasing STEM academics.

 

McCaw School of Mines is a member of The Water Street District Business Association and the Henderson Chamber of Commerce.
