Fiddletown, California

Fiddletown is a cute, very small, 1849 gold rush town. It's slightly out of the way- about 6 miles from Plymouth and highway 49. As a result of being out of the way it has pretty much zero tourist traffic and no tourist services. Fiddletown's current population is 235 (2010). Sidewalks in Fiddletown are not well developed which can make walking through town awkward. Parking is also slightly awkward but there is fortunately little traffic on Fiddletown road. Local residents seemed friendly enough to not mind when I was forced to walk through their yards. Fiddletown has a number of well preserved period buildings. Among them are a few structures from Fiddletown's Chinatown. These are on the East end of the main street and are identified with historical markers.
