For sale: A forgotten, dilapidated California ghost town
In 1851, gold was discovered in a remote part of California, and that find birthed Seneca, a mining town that now has no miners, no residents and little besides rusted motor homes and a bar.
Now, the land and everything on it, as broken-down and busted as it may be (save for the alluring Gin Mill bar), is up for sale on Craigslist for $225,000.
Learn more about Seneca’s history, from roughshod miners to “Woodstock West,” in our latest Column One feature from reporter Chris Megerian.
