The Plaza has several features to draw the visitor into the mood of Historic Yreka. The architectural design includes several materials that were the main construction materials of early Yreka. The back wall is made of Sandstone and brick form the original two buildings that were built here about 1855. The iron doors and window covers are reminiscent of the iron covers that were on all the doors and windows of the booming gold town. The arched sign over the Plaza in close to the design of the sign visitors see when they enter the center exit to Yreka. This arched sign lets them know they are in the correct place.
