“A unique State Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

This is a unique piece of California history that is slated to cease to be a State Park on July 1, 2012. Weaverville dates back to 1850 and was home to many chinese, and this was a place where they worshipped. A place worth preserving.

“Only open 2 days a week”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

This state treasure is only open on Thursdays and Saturdays. Lucky for me I was there on a thursday. This is a must for anyone in the area....a treasure not only of Chinese history but of CA history. Love the story about the pathways, evil spirits....
