A row of Stone Ruins is the first thing you’ll 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.
