New content: The Gold Diggers' Road

posted Feb 22, 2012, 11:37 PM by Manny Carvalho

At the Feb. meeting Chris Worick presented his findings on the Gold Diggers’ Road.  Using gold rush era maps he was able to construct the original route miners used to get to the gold fields.  He overlaid that information on current maps and although the original course is mostly abandoned, using the new map you can determine if the Gold Diggers’ Road ran through your backyard.  With the map you may also discover if there once was a gold mine on your property.
