one of my favorite things about northern california? there are towns that only stretch for one block. some of them aren't the size of a neighborhood. my mom will tell me about the neighbors down the street (10 miles away) and she'll mention a town that used to be there. some of them fade away, and only one or two people know that they ever existed. there's a crooked mansion near my parents' house - according to our neighbors, it used to be a one-room schoolhouse. you can tell by looking at the architecture.
