Site Condition:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coloma,_California >>>> Coloma Ghost Town - While some people still live in this unincorporated area, Coloma is considered something of a ghost town, as civic buildings such as the jail have been abandoned and left to decay, and other buildings from its boom era (1847-1852) have been converted into museums and other historical displays. The foundation of Sutters Mill remains, along with a nearby reconstruction.
