This historic park houses the remains of Shasta City, alive and bustling in the Gold Rush days, and now a ghost town with restored stagecoach, barn and courthouse.

Kids had fun and we learned something! Behind the old jail is a shady and grassy park with tables. Bring lunch or try the sometimes open seasonal restaurant across the street

Old Shasta is one of my favorite places to visit. I like to imagine what the city looked like during the gold rush era. The old bakery shop is open on weekends. And there's a museum to visit in the old courthouse restored to 1861....More

Make sure you go Thursday to Saturday, all closed otherwise. Interesting to see... The masonic temple here houses the 1st Chartered Lodge in California...

This is a great rest stop on a long trip. The brick buildings of a old mining town that tell the story of the lives of the original settlers. It has a nice picnic area and a museum

The City of Shasta was once a large, vibrant mining town. Now it is basically really interesting ruins. I missed the hours of the Museum, but still spent a couple hours wandering and photographing whats left of the town.

Great exhibit, nicely preserved and presented. Once a thriving town with a brewery and cemetery. Museum was not open, so check times if your interested in that feature.
