Jack London State Historic Park
London bought the property in 1905 and built a large house he dubbed the Wolf House. Unfortunately, the house burned down in 1913. The park consists of the ruins, the cottage in which Jack worked, another house called the House of Happy Walls built by his wife, hiking trails, and the grave site in which the ashes of both Jack and his wife, Carmain, are buried. A museum and small gift shop are housed in the House of Happy Walls. The property is a National Historic Landmark and a California Historical Landmark, and it is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
