  • Loved this place with the feel of a ghost town. The gallows are intriguing. Wish our court system worked that quick and responded in that matter! Great historical park to bring the family to and spend...  more »
  • Stopped here because it looked like an fun spot to get a little history and take unique pictures. Unfortunately, it began to hail the moment we showed up, so we only stayed a few minutes. Despite this...  more »
  • Shasta National Forest or state park is not so much the difficulty for a long stop, but Route 299 is certainly a beautiful scenic drive to or from Redwood National Park.

  • This place is fun. Lots of old building and history. Free to visit. Great for family photos, too.
  • Although a small park (approximately one block in length) of brick building ruins, visiting here is certainly worth the effort. About 1/2 hour's drive west of Redding CA (before Whiskeytown NRA), it is an easy location to find. The accompanying museums are fantastic, esp. in the historic store that was sold to the CA State Park system intact with its old, original merchandise. It's a great place to spend an afternoon learning about one of CA's historic places.
  • Had a blast going with my husband to pioneer days! They really recreate the era and show what a town in the early century.
  • Nice spot to stop and stretch our legs, I love reading placards about historical sites so this was right up my alley! We did see very fresh bear scat on the trail above the brick ruins so be aware! Bathrooms were locked in the middle of the day.
  • Interesting historic town. Take a couple of hours to explore
