The Sam Choy Brick Store, Angels Camp, California, is the only building remaining from a large Chinese settlement during the California gold rush. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.

After it served as a general store, its owner sold it to Angels Camp for use as a jail.[1] The Sam Choy Brick Store is still owned by the city of Angels Camp.[2]
