Founded in March 1851 with the discovery of gold in the nearby "flats", Yreka quickly became the commercial and transportation hub for the surrounding communities and mining camps. Yreka's tents and shanties gave way to more substantial commercial and residential buildings seen on West Miner and Third Streets which remain as tangible evidence of the town's 19th Century regional prominence.

California Registered Historical Landmark No. 901

Plaque placed by the State Department of Parks and Recreation in cooperation with the city of Yreka, September 1, 1977.

Our web page for the West Miner Street National Register Historic District contains photographs of some other commercial buildings on West Miner Street and residential buildings on Third Street.
