About This Site
Timbuctoo, California, was once the most thriving town in eastern Yuba County. Now it’s only the ghost of a ghost town. What happened? Why didn’t Timbuctoo survive like Placerville, Nevada City and other Gold Country towns? Timbuctoo had a roaring past. And though it doesn’t have much of a present, it just might have a future.
I’m hoping to use this site to share information and stories about Timbuctoo, California, and to make it easier for people with similar knowledge and interests to get in touch with me.
