The legend is that fiddle-playing miners from Missouri named the flat and town. By the late 1850’s, Fiddletown had a sizable Chinese community and a rare Chinese rammed earth adobe. Today that adboe is the Chew Kee Store, with a collection of a Chinese Herb doctor’s medicinal artifacts. Once a year musicians arrive from near and far to play music at the Fiddlers Jam. This free event brings plenty of audience to listen and applaud.
