Depressions in the Ground

As you walk through the woods, you’ll see numerous holes in the ground. What do you think they are? They could be privies (outhouses) or root cellars. Since this gold rush was so short lived, some people took their buildings with them when they left. Other buildings were demolished and the lumber sold, and the few remaining buildings were later used by homesteaders until they collapsed. This explains why there is little visible evidence that anyone lived here.
