Columbia State Historic Park is a Must See

Columbia State Historic Park

Columbia State Historic Park just 20 minutes from Jamestown is a must see! This historic gold rush town was made a state park in 1945. Between the 1850s and 1870s over one-half billion dollars in gold was mined in the area. Today we can take a step back in time to experience life in 1850s California. 

Spend the day enjoying fun activities for the whole family. Take a stroll along wooden sidewalks, ride an authentic 100 year old stage coach, discover unique shops, pan for riches of gold and chat with knowledgeable and friendly townspeople dressed in period attire. Historic inns, restaurants, ice cream parlor, candy stores, saloons, and a tea house stand ready to quench your thirst, satisfy a sweet tooth, and fill your appetite. Be sure to enjoy a cold bottle of locally made Sarsaparilla to get a taste of the old west and then head over to the portrait studio and dress up for an old-time photo. The working blacksmith shop, old-fashioned bowling alley, theatre and shops supplied with treats and trinkets add to the ambiance of the town where a new surprise is around every corner.

Parking and entrance to Columbia State Historic Park are free. Additional fees may apply for special events in the park. For more information on hours, museums, exhibits, merchants, restaurants, hotels, cottages, guided tours and special events visit their website here.
