Fodor's Expert Review Dredzen Shop and House Museum

Pilgrim's Rest Historic District/Site

Experience life after the heady gold-rush days, and relive the 1930s, when 16 general stores lined the streets of Pilgrim's Rest. By 1950 mine production had taken a nosedive, and most of the businesses had shut down. The Dredzen Shop and House Museum re-creates the look of a general store during those lean years, with shelves displaying authentic items that would have been on sale, from jams and preserves to candles and matches. The attached house belonged to the shopkeeper and recreates the life of a middle class family in Pilgrim's Rest from 1930–1950.
