What a hidden gem! The local historical society came together and preserved this old town and its buildings. Although some displays are weathered with age, you can see it was all hand done and with lots of pride for the history. Many current residents and descendents of the towns people have donated artifacts, pictures, and stories. So much history in one tiny spot. Loved it!!!!!

About a half hour from Oroville, this little town (population 35) hosts a number of abandoned buildings that have been preserved and converted into a museum describing the history and way of life from the early 1900’s. Because of COVID-19, the museum in the old brick school was closed, but we were able to walk around the old town and explore the buildings and displays there. They have a broad collection of artifacts, equipment, and furnishings and descriptions of events of significance for the town. It is well worth the drive through the hills and farmland to visit this museum and ghost town.

Wonderful stop off as we were driving around the area with a friend. Free entry and absolutely no-one else here. Authentic pioneer town, preserved like an outdoor museum. Several buildings which you can wander in to, lots of fascinating farming machinery and old black and white photographs. Great history about the town and very atmospheric. The pioneer cabins were great set up to show daily life. We spent about an hour here as I was taking a lot of photographs. Loved it.

We were on a roadtrip on our motorcycles with friends and had made this a destination, we were so glad we did this is a wonderful walk through history!
No guided tour just wonder around looking at the way life was back during the building of this country. Would recommend this place to anyone interisted in history .It would be a great place to bring children for a lesson in history!

A beautiful day, we were the only two people there, walked in all the different buildings and enjoyed all the old farming machinery and implements.

Wow, what a great stop that has been preserved very well. We spent about 45 minutes walking through each building. If you are in the area you must stop and see this little gem. Nobody was around on a Friday and we were free to go from building to building.

This is a real piece of local history. The museum is in the old school and is attended by helpful docents who have an indepth knowledge of the area. The ghost town consists of a small deserted town with recreated store, dentist office, etc. It's a great walk around and really speaks to the history of the area.

This is a great way to spend a few hours if you like history. Buildings are time period correct and you can go through quite a few of them. The school museum is a time capsule. The amount of historical information that is displayed and has been written gives you a wonderful feel for the early 1900's.

Must visit if you are going through the area. See how the folks who settled the area lived. Great place for photos, too. We bring a picnic lunch and hang out and pretend we are back in the day. Lots of fun for families and interested folks in general.

What was it like 110 years ago? The buildings, including the outhouse, equipment and stories make it a learning experience and just plain fun for all ages.
