Miner Street is a true relic of the gold mining era and a must visit destination in Yreka. Look for historical markers fixed to shop and restaurant storefronts describing buildings and historical landmarks.
Visit the old fashioned Soda Fountain in Bella Art Works, a long time favorite of locals and visitors alike. The ice cream fountain and ceramic studio combo creates a bright and friendly venue for visitors, kids and parties.
The brand new Miner Street Meat Market, reminiscent of the City Meat Market of 1854, features natural, organic and local meats, old fashioned whole dill pickles and a 12 tap, draft beer growler fill station featuring rare micro-brews, craft beers and much more. Yreka is soon to be a mecca for brewers and beer enthusiasts with the new Etna Brew Taphouse at 4th and Miner.
While meandering, be sure to wisp through The Sewing Room, where fashion designer, Heidi Martin features her line of western home decor, art and Blue Eyed Girl clothing. Across the street, Farm Girl Antiques sells a collection of antique and refurbished home decor. Next door, visit Dan Daniels at New Traditions Dulcimers & Wood Crafts.

The store also features its own line of organic soaps, soy candles, wooden hand stenciled signs, rustic cottage furniture and hand crafted wood toys
