What makes Old Town extra special is the merchants located in Old Town's State Historic Park. As part of the state's commitment to preserving and educating the public about our rich history and the significant part we played in California's birth – merchants located in historic original and reconstructed buildings are required to carry merchandise that was common to the 1800s and dress in period attire. This all contributes to the "living history" mbiance that only Old Town can provide.
