California A step Back in Time 165 years

Category: Donna's Park | Posted: Fri Feb 07, 2014 8:07 pm

This really was a step back in time.
Little Washington Gold Mining Town was stamped out in 1849. It is in the Sierra Nevada mountains, in a canyon between 5000 foot high mountain ridges and on the banks of the Yuba river It have over 5000 gold mines, some still being mined.
The Washington Hotel was names after our first president. President Grover Cleveland and Wyatt Earp both slept here. It is still operating as a hotel, restaurant and bar.

Amazing that the buildings are still standing and being used. Many small town buildings seemed to suffer from fire and were destroyed in many localities. Neat to see a mercantile that is a clone to one I remember as a kid. It was a warehouse of photos and memorabilia from the previous century. Nice to see one still full of life and articles from the 1800s. Thanks for sharing.

What a tremendously interesting place. You took some good foto's there and so we can see the interesting bits easily.
The commentary gave the pics meaning.

Great job, Donna.....and great vacation!
