Gold rush-era dredge at Chicken taken down

Another piece of gold rush history is gone. The Bureau of Land Management has demolished an historic gold dredge at Chicken. The turn-of-the-century Wade Creek dredge was a popular stop for tour busses on the Taylor Highway, but B.L.M. spokesman Dog Stockdale says it had become a hazard.
