Chinese Store Ruins
The Chinese Store Ruins are the last substantial
remains of what
was once a large Chinese section of town. The
constructed of stone and a small amount of lumber,
with mud, clay, and
moss used for chinking the holes. The walls were
eighteen inches thick
and were fitted with the familiar iron doors and
shutters of the era.
The two buildings reportedly belonged to men of
different tongs, and
although located right next door to each other,
miners who dealt with
one would not trade with the other.
