A great touch if the old west gold mining period. Wonderful place to visit. Loved seeing all the old stuff from the California gold rush more »
If you are a fan of the old west and pioneering life, this is a must visit destination. They run a preserved historic town from the schoolhouse museum to the jail, general store, station, blacksmith, hotel, etc. And the staff are in traditional clothing of the early gold rush. This is a place to look for antiques, old fashioned candies, and fun for every age. I highly recommend seeing a play, taking the stagecoach, taking high tea, and mining for gold out at the mining shack.
So much history preserved here! Had a great time panning for gold and a tasty lemonade to end the day. I liked that the streets were closed off so I didn’t have to worry about cars with my 2 year old.
