Gold Rush Town - Eureka California

  • Early view of Main St. Eureka California. Eureka received it's name from the greek work meaning "I have found it" .  Because of it's location on Humbolt Bay in the 1850's, Eureka became a major player in developing supply lines to inland gold mines for a convenient alternate to the tedious overland route from Sacramento.
