Located in the western section of Whiskeytown National Recreation Area where three creeks merge into one, Tower House Historic District is the park’s signature historic site. Wintu heritage merges with California Gold Rush history here, and some big names associated with the historic district include Levi Tower, Charles Camden and Philena Camden, and American Indian servant Kate Camden. As you stroll along the paved interpretive trail, ponder the lives of these individuals and think about how they gained sustenance from the land and water.
