Keithley Creek is a Townsite, that in the eighteen hundreds had a population of 100,000 people mostly miners seeking their fortunes at the rich Gold Fields of the area.The name came from Doc Keithley who discovered a vast amount of Gold in the Creek.
The Townsite and Ranch around the site is in private ownership but can be visited by appointment. Keithley Creek was the last stop before Barkerville and the Farm/Ranch that is still part of the townsite supplied most of the food for Barkerville in the Summertime during the Gold Rush.
