We drove past the "commercial" part, which is actually a functioning convenience store, and an interesting looking bar, and went to the stone highway market (in the already posted pictures) describing the Mark Twain Brett Harte Trail. from that monument, if you turn right down Main Street, you will see a very few old building, deserted, No Trespassing, etc. There is a plaque on one of them from E Clampus Vitas (I love those guys) about the last stagecoach drive in California, Directly across the street on the other side of the highway, a few hundred feet in (before the road dead ends) is the old St Francis Xavier church, looks right out of a western, I was hoping Gary Cooper would walk out the front door. There is the requisite cemetery in the kirkyard, and a big steel cable holding the building proper from sliding away, it seems. If you like to look at old stuff and imagine what it was like when it was operating, this is a cool stop.
