Jamestown

Compact Jamestown supplies a touristy view of gold rush-era life. Shops in brightly colored buildings along Main Street sell antiques and gift items. You can try your hand at panning for gold here or, if state budget cuts haven't forced its complete closure, visit Railtown 1897 (www.railtown1897.org), the local (mostly) outdoor railroad museum.
