This Historic Park stands on the site of James Marshall's riot-inducing discovery, with a replica of Sutter's Mill, restored buildings and gold-panning opportunities for kids. There's a hilltop monument to Marshall himself, who, in one of the many ironic twists of the Gold Rush, died a ward of the state.
