Weaverville Joss House State Historic Park
Start your day out at Weaverville Joss House State Historic Park, the oldest continuously used Chinese temple in California. On display are art objects, pictures, mining tools, and weapons used in the 1854 Tong War. This Taoist temple is still a place of worship and is a fascinating look into the role played by Chinese immigrants in early California history.
