If Picks and Shovels Could Talk - 18th Gathering of Cornish Cousins  (Conferences outside Michigan)
Gold Hill, North Carolina
Was your grandfather a miner?
Do you know what a Pasty is? 
Have you heard of Cornwall?
This might just be the event for you to find out. 
 
The Cornish American Heritage Society is featuring an area of the U.S. whose Cornish history is new to many of us. Gold Hill and nearby Salisbury, North Carolina, are rich in gold mining legend and lore. 

Salisbury is on I-85 midway between Charlotte and Greensboro. As we know, not only do mines and miners make history, but the cultural and social development surrounding them is of significance — this promises to be a memorable event.
