Stone Ruins

A row of Stone Ruins is the first thing youíll notice upon entering Campo Seco. Perhaps four or five stores once occupied these remains during the Gold Rush and beyond, most likely general stores, saloons, or maybe an express office as the Adams Express Company operated here for a time. The workmanship that went into these buildings is still evident, especially around the doors and windows, where extra care was used in placing the quarried blocks and carefully selected stones. Shaded by a number of trees growing both in and around the roofless walls, these ruins provide an intriguing place to wander about.
