Virtual History Happy Hour: Restoring a Gold Rush Cabin

When gold was discovered in the rivers of Sutter Hill in Colma, California, the discovery drastically changed the landscape of 19th century California. A wave of settlers with gold in their eyes moved into mining hot-spots, building (and sometimes destroying) communities in the process.
In this presentation, Andy Carpentier takes us through the restoration of an 1866 Gold Rush Cabin located in Sonora, CA, known as the “Queen of the Southern Mines.” Join us for insight into the history, architecture, and the twists and turns of this incredible restoration project.
