What sites lost to history close to you?

I stumbled across a couple of historic schoolhouses while out riding the other day. Rustic historic sites have a way of capturing my imagination an carrying me back to what I (mis)assume must have been simpler times. These little discoveries remind me (yet again) why I like to get out on the bike - if even for only an hour in the winter.

Some pictures - not necessarily bike related (oh well) are posted at:

A one stop town...Nashville, Ca on Hwy 49 between Plymouth & El Dorado

Nashville (formerly, Nashville Bar, Quartzville, and Quartzburg)[2] is an unincorporated community in El Dorado County, California.[1] It is located on the North Fork of the Cosumnes River 10.5 miles (17 km) south of Placerville,[2] at an elevation of 863 feet (263 m).[1]

The place was first called Nashville Bar, then Quartzville and Quartzburg, before being named for Nashville, Tennessee.[2]

A post office operated in Nashville from 1852 to 1854 and from 1870 to 1907.[2]

Nashville (CA) is one of those places easily whizzed past - and I've done it too many times. This response reminds me that I must stop there some time, root around a bit and then be able to say that I've marked another one off my Bucket List.

Being down here in the city I can only add Ontario Motor Speedway - a place ahead of its time and is now a shopping mall
I worked Flag & Communications one summer, almost got run over by Gene Romero when he crashed his Triumph in Turn 18








Now that I think about it, I remember working at Riverside International Raceway as well.
Saw some great drivers and some great machinery !!
