Rosenberg Store Ruins

The Rosenberg Store Ruins are the last remaining Gold Rush elements in Jenny Lind today. Chinese coolies quarried the stone blocks used in constructing this store from the local hills. They then carted the stones to the site in wheeled contraptions similar to our wheelbarrows, but with the bed on a swinging pivot. Rosenberg’s store stocked men’s clothing and was advertised as supplying the “Correct Attire for the Miner or Prospector.” Today only portions of the walls remain, around a slowly filling excavation which was the basement.
