: Recently went through Nevada City, Ca and heard reference to Lake City. Didn't see it on a map and had to leave, but at home saw a Lake City Rd. on a real-estate listing so assume the story must have been true. It's not listed on Ghosttown.com or other sires. Anyone know more?

: Lake City was founded in 1864 as the first organized community in the area with a grist mill, school, and saw mill. The flouring mill, constructed in 1867, still stands at the mouth of Lake City Canyon in the center of town. The gold rush emigrant trail passed near Lake City, and wagon tracks still remain today in some parts of the route. The Warner Mountains may be accessed from Lake City Canyon Road along the scenic creek.

: I have passed by it many times on the way to North Bloomfield. There is nothing left but a plaque on private property. I have in my collection a letter written back in the 1800's by a woman who lived there.
: There is nothing left to see there.

: Check out my web page for North Bloomfield just up the road.
