Wine country for the Gold Rush Region of California - in the Western Sierra foothills. The downtown buildings have traditional store fronts that make the shops seem bigger than they really are - a common style for boom towns during the gold rush. The main street is made up of a Large Saloon and Hotel on the corner. Across the street is a cluster of homes and stores, with a large Victorian home that makes you wonder what spritis reside within it walls.
