Site information:Intersection of Whiskey Creek Rd and State Hwy 299
Very little remains of this site. I don't believe the General Store in the photo is original. There is a National Recreation Site at Whiskeytown Lake which has some infomation about the history. The townsite is underwater.
Plaque information:No plaque
OHP description:Settled by gold miners in 1849, the town was first called Whiskey Creek for the stream on which it was located, but later the name was changed to Whiskeytown. A barrel of whiskey lost off a pack mule christened the stream with the popular drink of that day. The town is inundated by Whiskeytown Reservoir.
