Welcome...Step Back In Time...

Weaverville, California- is located on Highway 299W, 50 miles West of Redding. Visiting us today you will think that when you turn on to our historic tree-lined main street that you have been transported back in time.

However, you will find the modern conveniences to facilitate your visit everywhere. Our Red brick buildings circa 1850 with their White spiral staircases cast their shadows on the modern highway of today, just the same way they did when horses and wagons lined them in gold rush times.

Many of Weaverville's historical buildings date back to the 1850's and are home to the unique and the necessary. The many surviving red brick buildings adorned with wood, tin roofs and metal shutters are the result of surviving fires that burned parts of Weaverville almost to the ground in the early years. The thick 24" brick walls, some filled with sand, have resisted flames, weather and archietectual threats through time.

The varied town cuisine ranges from a '50s style' drive-in, modern franchise restaurants, your favorite deli food or a lovely gourmet restaurant to see and be seen in, it is all here. You will even find a Chinese Restaurant in a historic brewery building across from the Chinese Joss House Temple itself.

Modern motels, charming cabins, RV facilities, Bed and Breakfast or a historic Hotel, they are all here for your deserved rest and to fill your mind with the life that was weaverville 150 years ago.

There are many things to see and do in Weaverville from the art galleries and stores that have shelves lined with products from local craftpersons and artists, to antique and book stores provide memories of your visit. The Trinity Theatre with it's '30s exterior and modern 2 screen cinema even has real butter on the popcorn.

The first Saturday of each month brings the local "Art Cruise & Walk" that includes visits to the many galleries and the art show openings from 5 to 9PM. Daylight hours offer opportunities to walk self-guided tours, or visit the Jake Jackson Museum and Historical Park to view the many displays or the working circa 1920's Blacksmith Shop.

The famous Joss House Chinese Temple, has watched from under the trees as the nearby trail turned from Mule travel to year-around highway as horses, mules, wagons and coaches have turned into cars, motorcycles and now SUVs bringing people and commerce to Weaverville under the watchful gaze of the snow-capped Trinity Alps.

A large modern supermarket, major drug store and many retail stores serve the community and visitors alike year round. Weaverville is the county seat of Trinity County with government, with modern medical, legal and public safety services headquarterd here.

Advancements in telecommunications have brought Cyberspace, Cable TV and E-Commerce to those that want and need it here in the mountains.. New Cellular telephone towers will bring expanded communications to new parts Trinity county in 2008.

James Hilton, the author of "Lost Horizons" that introduced the legendary "Shangri-la" to the world said that Weaverville came closest to that definition than anywhere else on the planet. Visit Weaverville and you too will agree.

Our Alpine lakes, rivers and creeks offer many recreational opportunites from fishing, rafting and hiking to water sports, gold panning, bird watching and just plain resting in the forest.

Visit my many websites and pages with their pictures, calendars, maps, directories and tourism suggestions to help make your stay in Trinity a cherished memory.

Greg Greenwood. Webmaster - Last Update: 07/2007 -


About the Author: Greg came to Weaverville in the early 1970's when his parents moved to Weaverville for working retirement. After living most of his life in the San Francisco Bay Area, Marin County, Aptos-Big Sur and at the edge of Kaneohe Bay, Oahu, Hawaii, he always spent a few weeks every year in Trinity. A full-time resident since 1999, he has been "virtually" bringing people to Trinity County and Weaverville since 1993 on the internet.

He has provided FREE Internet Tourism, Business and Community Websites; as part of the "TrinityCam Project". These pages provide lists of ALL of Trinity's business, show pictures of our mountains, rivers, lakes, streams, forests, historical buildings and events.

The "TrinityCam" webcam has provided a window into our scenic paradise to the entire world with images uploaded everyday. Viewers from around the world become "visitors", people from around the country are inspired to move here and become neighbors.

Greg has been tending the webcam much like a "lighthouse keeper" year around, removing snow or visiting insects from the front camera enclosure, standing on a ladder. (7/2007)
