Columbia State Historic Park, located in Tuolumne County, is designated a National Historic Landmark District. Unlike many Gold Rush settlements that disappeared due to fire, vandalism and time, Columbia survived. The community was never completely deserted, and in 1945, the State Legislature made the site a State Historic Park in order to preserve a typical Gold Rush town and share the impact the Gold Rush made in California.
Columbia State Historic Park is a major tourist destination in Tuolumne County. The Park includes more than twenty concessionaires whose businesses keep the Gold Rush merchant story alive.
