California State Historic Landmark 792
#792 Dog Town
Site of the first major gold rush to California's eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada, Dog Town derived its name from a popular miners' term for camps with huts or hovels. Ruins, lying close to the cliff bordering Dog Town Creek, are all that remain of the makeshift dwellings which here formed part of the "diggins."
U.S. Hwy 395 (PM 69.5), 7 mi S of Bridgeport.
