I went away for Spring Break. I went up to Reno which is a four hour drive from my house. On the way back, I stopped in the Gold Rush Town of Auburn, which is located about 30 miles from Sacramento. It cool little town with lots of history;
|Auburn Fire House-built in 1891|
|This statue created by Kenneth H. Fox|
is a tribute to the historical
significance of the Chinese worke in the construction of the
transcontinental railroad through the Sierra Mountains of
|Statue of Claude Chana who was the first to discover gold in the streambed on a local creek in 1849|
Auburn is a nice little town to take a side trip into.
Thanks for linking up with Thankful Thursday. This looks like a cool trip. Great to be thankful for.ReplyDelete
Hi Patrick, That firehouse so authentic, I bet it has a history to it. What a quaint little town to visit. I enjoy going off the planned road to visit sites out of the ordinary. You never know what you may find or learn. Thanks for sharing your adventure with us this week. Love having you. Enjoy your weekend.ReplyDelete
I love visiting little towns they have so much character and such history!ReplyDelete
Thank you for stopping by to share them on Oh My Heartsie Girls Friday Features today, I appreciate that.
I am pinning to share!!

So much history! My oldest son would love this trip! He's a huge fan of the show Gold Rush and has started studying everything he can about mining gold and the California gold rush.ReplyDelete
Oh I haven't been to Auburn in ages! I will have to add it to my to visit list with my family. Thanks for sharing on #FridayFrivolityReplyDelete
Looks like a nice little, quiet town. #PhotoFridayReplyDelete

Looks like a great place. Gold mining towns must be really interesting.ReplyDelete

You visit and share the best places!ReplyDelete
I hope to visit California some day - I'm on the East Coast and have only been to Portland OR out west. This looks like a cool little town - I really love the statues!ReplyDelete
Sounds good! Thanks for sharing at Practical Mondays!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful little town. In a community where the tendency is to tear down everything old and replace with bland, cookie cutter new crud, I really appreciate places who maintain their historic architecture. Those buildings are beautiful. I think that it is so unusual and refreshing that the town has a statute commemorating the Chinese contributions in the U.S. during the 19th and 20th centuries. Thank you so much for sharing this gem with #UpsyDaisyLinkup!ReplyDelete
I haven't been to this part of California yet (or to the Reno area). We almost decided doe Lake Tahoe for Memorial weekends but we ended up changing our plans. Have a great week!ReplyDelete
Awesome to find your blog via Practical Mondays! I clicked your blog post because I spent my entire childhood in the Auburn area! It's the first time in five years of blogging that I've seen a post on Auburn, and it's wonderful to be brought back there after all these years.ReplyDelete
These looks like a neat little town. I would love to visit the west one day and see all these scenic little cities. Until then, I'll have to live through you. Thanks for sharing with us at the Friday Funday Blog Hop! <3ReplyDelete
