Church of the Immaculate Conception is a quaint little church, and a City of Downieville landmark. It is a Gold Rush-era parish, established in 1852.

Church of the Immaculate Conception

The original church burned down in 1858, and the current building was erected the same year. The community was once bustling with active timber and mining industries.

Both have closed down, and most of the younger families have moved away (Downieville is the county seat, so government is still a growth industry in the area!).
