For history buffs, this city is unmissable! Like Tombstone, this town has been kept in the same condition as it was in the 1850's. You can see the main street, bank, hotel with saloon bar, shops and blacksmith's forge. You'll see people in period costumes, too - a great way to get a glimpse of life at the time.
In the historic town of Columbia, California, a festival is held each year. You can see tents, gold prospectors' stands, old grocery stores and a classic Chinese laundry. The festival illustrates the life of the early settlers of this gold rush town, who didn't have permanent homes but rather lived in tents.
