Know your history – Clarksville Day May 8

We live in one of the most historically rich areas of California. The gold discovery that kicked off the California Gold Rush is 15 miles from our house, and we are surrounded by other pieces of history.  One of them is less than a mile from my office and I drive by it every day on the way to work. Never heard of Clarksville?

Some great pictures of Clarksville are on Flickr, including these by Don Chaddock from the Folsom Telegraph.

Clarksville is now on private property and only open once a year for Clarksville Day.  We went last year and had a great time. Recommend you check it out and learn a little about where you live, and have a good time with the kids.
