We were there 5 or 6 years ago. Connie, the owner/operator of the general/antique store showed us where Dick Engle lived. Dick is the "curator" of the museum. Nice little museum.
There are a lot of ghost towns in that area, if your friend is into ghost towns. About 4 or 5 miles west of Gold Point is New Palmetto. The buildings are gone but the mines are still intact and there were lots of unbroken bottles in the dump.
Just so you don't get lost, here is a point of reference. At the intersection of highway 95 and 266, where you turn west to get to Gold Point, on the southwest corner is a brothel.
