True there is not a lot to see and all or most of the remains have been removed. However, it it nice to see that the Chinese are acknowledged as part of Yreka's history.

There isn't much to see here. A single stone and 3 plaques. The is some desert area to walk around on behind the memorial. You wouldn't be missing much if you skipped this place.
