Additional Details:
Amador City is located on Amador Creek and was only a camp in 1849. The first quartz discovery was in 1851 when the Rev. Mr. Davidson and three other preachers hit gold. The men did quite good out of their claims on week days, and preached for the good of the miners souls on Sundays. It was in 1869 when the Bonanza vein was discovered and the first month's milling produced over $40,000. The Store was built by a man by the name of Fleethart in 1851. Because of the high production costs the mines closed down in the late 1880s...M.P
