The Captain Brown house is one of the earliest examples of Gothic Revival Architecture, with its gabled roof jutting skyward like spearpoints. Josiah Prentiss Brown (Captain of the Yuba Light Infantry, state legislator, banker and goldminer) built this 5 bed/1 bath home back in 1854 during the Gold Rush heyday of Camptonville. Now a sleepy mountain town, Camptonville once featured 50 bars, countless brothels, and even a bowling alley. You can almost hear the saloon piano calling out to bone-weary gold miners after a day of blasting away the hillside with giant water cannons. Now is a rare opportunity to own this piece of history! The home is almost completely original. The property includes 2 separate parcels, a manufactured home and a sweet miners cottage for rental income. It is also permitted as a mobile home park with 2 additional hookups! This beautiful piece of land features fruit trees, grape vines and veggie beds. Create your dream homestead on this very special property.
