Few People Know This Unique Temple In Northern California Even Exists

Chinese immigrants played an important role in Northern California’s history, and they definitely left their mark on this region of the country. We see the old rock walls all over gold country, but few people have experienced the incredible Taoist temple in Weaverville that was built starting in the 1850s. It’s an impressive structure that all Northern Californians should visit at least once.
