This picturesque village is situated along a beautiful creek in the central Gold Country region. Homes lining the hilltops look down upon the oak filled valley & historic highway 49. The sidewalks are filled with signs of historic buildings and notations. Restaurant, shops & museums. A very nice, rural small town for a local weekend getaway.
