Chew Kee Store
The "Chew Kee" is a Chinese rammed earth structure established as an herb shop during the Gold Rush. Dr. Yee Fong Cheung, an herb doctor who was operating the store in the early years, came to America to administer to the medical needs of the Chinese miners, later also tending to the Chinese railroad workers. In the 1880's a man known only by his store name of "Chew Kee" owned the shop and was providing groceries and supplies to the Chinese community. "Chew Kee" remains largely intact as one of only four remnants of the once thriving Chinese community in Fiddletown. The store is open on Saturday from noon to 4 p.m., April through October.

Kennedy Gold Mine
The Kennedy Mine, famous for being one of the deepest gold mines in the world (at 5912 feet), demonstrates how gold changed an entire way of life in California. Between 1848 and 1858, California exploded from being a largely unpopulated agrarian state into a vital, fast growing and exciting part of the United States. Prospected in 1860, reorganized in 1886 and continuously run until 1942, the Kennedy Gold Mine produced approximately $34,280,000 in gold according to the CA Dept. of Conservation. One of the tallest head frames in existence today can be seen at the Kennedy Mine.
