The Year of the Tiger is celebrated at Weaverville Joss House with the traditional Chinese Lion Dance. Located in historic Weaverville, CA, the county seat for Trinity County, the Weaverville Joss House, a Taoist temple, is the oldest continuously used Chinese temple in California. On display are art objects, pictures, mining tools, and weapons used in the 1854 Tong War. This Taoist temple is still a place of worship and a fascinating look into the role played by Chinese immigrants in early California history. The Joss House was built in 1874 as a replacement for another that had burned.
