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.
