For those of you, who have been following my blog, you know that I have a fascination for the California Mother Lode - the little towns, and their history.  A few days back, I wrote about Amador City a little treasure along the Highway 49 daisy chain of California Gold Rush towns that make up the tapestry of rich California history.Late last week, I gathered up a couple more grandkids, and my camera.  We jumped in the car, and headed off once again, traveling south east on highway 16, which connects up with highway 49 further south east through the likes of Dry Town, Amador City, Sutter Creek, Jackson, San Andreas and Angels Camp, before reaching The Gem of the Southern Mines, Columbia.Of all the little Gold Rush towns still in existence today, Columbia is one that I enjoy the most for ...

Columbia is a famous gold rush town, which began in March of 1850 when gold was first discovered there. By the month�s end, more than 1,000 prospectors had moved into a tent and shantytown housing. At first, the town was called American Camp, but was later changed to its permanent name, Columbia. In 1945, California legislature appropriated money to preserve Columbia as the gold rush town it had been with the creation of the Columbia State Historic Park in downtown Columbia.   LOCATION  Columbia is located in Tuolumne County in the middle of California�s Gold Country. It is off of Highway 49, north of Sonora and west of Twain Harte. It is 140 miles from San Francisco and 76 miles from Yosemite Valley.
