Also see . . .  Forbestown History - Forbestown Lodge. Taking its name from a mining camp established by B.F. Forbes in 1850, this little Lodge is located in Forbestown, about twenty-five miles east of Oroville. Forbestown is located about the same distance from Marysville. Roads traverse some very interesting country. On the way from Oroville, one passes the famous Black Bart Monument. (Submitted on December 9, 2012, by Barry Swackhamer of Brentwood, California.)
