Located in a remote section of the East Bay, Drawbridge began as a gaming village. With the 1920's and prohibition, the town boomed for a while as people rode special trains out to Drawbridge. However it was essentially abandoned in the 1930's with the end of prohibition. Submitted by John Bertolini.
