Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park (Coloma - Gold Rush)

Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park, created in 1942, encompasses most of the historic town of Coloma. With about 300 year-round residents in the Coloma area, the tree-lined streets of the park are usually quiet, shady, and serene. Most visitors and students come during spring, summer, and fall or for special events year-round, including the annual January 24 celebration of Marshall's gold discovery.

A number of historic buildings and sites—including the working blacksmith shop, the Price-Thomas and Papini homes, the Mormon, James Marshall and Miner's cabins, and the Indian bedrock mortar—remain to remind us of that tumultuous period. One outstanding attraction of the park is the full-sized replica of Sutter's sawmill. The original, abandoned and torn down for its lumber, disappeared in the flood of 1862. The replica, looking much like the original, was recently rebuilt near the discovery site. Some of the original mill's timbers, reclaimed from the river, are displayed nearby.

Gold panning activities take place year-round. There are great walking trails and picnic spots throughout the area.
