The Adams Museum will display the famous Potato Creek Johnny Gold Nugget (7.75 oz. of gold) along with the newly discovered Icebox Nugget (3.96 oz. of gold) on Sunday, July 24 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. This is the last time the two nuggets will be displayed together.  I believe that the Icebox nugget is privately owned so future viewing is unpredictable.  The Adams Museum owns the Potato Creek Johnny nugget and it is rarely on display.  

Here is a question for you, where is Potato Creek located in the Black Hills of SD?
