I like 'em historical buildings in Rough & Ready, California
ROUGH & READY, CALIFORNIA
The Rough & Ready Mining Company founded the town in 1849. In 1850, Rough & Ready became the only mining town to “secede” from the union and the Territory of California, only to then quickly vote itself back in. Populated mostly by Wisconsin miners hoping to rid themselves of all outside laws and restrictions (especially prohibition), the secession was decided. It came to an abrupt halt, when preparing for a 4th of July rager, the brand new country realized it was no longer a part of the United States. It was voted back in just in time for the festivities.
