description:
aka: Hang Town
Historic Gold Country with main street shopping & many services. Restaurants, antique shops, sporting goods, jewelers & much more. Countryside with rolling hills, homes, oak trees & gold mining history. I guess the miners were pretty mean guys, cuz they are known to have killed off the California state grizzly bears & also hung their outlaw brothers.
