About Jim Roos 530 906-4085
'Major' William H. Downie, a renowned gold prospector, recognized as the founder of Downieville, California.As the first house built in the area, this was a rustic log cabin situated high above the river. It is by virtue of this structure that Downie claimed to be the founder of Downieville. He was said to have offered a coffee can full of gold if they would name the town after him.
Jim Roos 530 906-4085 purchased this House in 2010
Why Jim Roos 530 906-4085 chose Downieville
A destructive fire in the early 2000, claimed Downie's original cabin site. Happily, a new house has recently been completed on the site and is available for short term rental. You can experience the beauty and serenity which William Downie recounted in his memoirs. 'The scene that burst upon us was one of marvelous beauty and after these many years, it still lays before me like a lovely panorama in my recollection of the moment I first saw it.'
