Jake Jackson Memorial Museum
If you like history, you’ll love this museum. The museum has several exhibits of which the blacksmith shop and Paymaster Stamp Mill are the most popular. In the early years in Weaverville there were six to eight blacksmith shops in town. After the last smithy died in 1936 every building was dismantled and taken down. The Trinity County Historical Society to rebuild a replica of the last shop which was completed next to the main museum in 1989.
The Paymaster Stamp Mill replicates the only working steam powered stamp mill on the west coast. A stamp mill would pound gold into bricks with their special ID for the San Francisco mint to keep track of the owners. When it is in operation the mill whistle blows. Some stamp mills were located within the gold dredgers, as was the Coffee Creek-Carrville Dredge.

The Temple of the Forest Beneath the Clouds
The temple is the oldest continuously used Chinese temple in California. On display are art objects, pictures, mining tools, and weapons used in the 1854 Tong War. This Taoist temple is still a place of worship and a fascinating look into the role played by Chinese immigrants in early California history. The temple was built in 1874 as a replacement for another that had burned.

Bowerman Barn, built in 1878 by Jacob Bowerman, stands today as an outstanding example of a late 19th century hand-crafted structure. The barn (along with 155 acres of land surrounding it) was acquired by the Forest Service in 1974, and is on the National Register of Historic Places. It is significant for its historic association with the growth and development of local commerce and agriculture. Few other barns remaining in Northern California rival Bowerman Barn in age or state of preservation. The barn is located between Covington Mill and Bowerman Boat Ramp on the outskirts of Trinity Center.
