Mexican Gold Miners settled San Andreas in 1848. By 1850 more than 1,000 tents dotted the hillsides. In 1856, the first church was a canvas structure with a simple cross over the door that designated it a church of the Roman Catholic faith. It was named after St. Andrew (San Andreas) and the name of the town was taken from this church.
The San Andreas Nugget was located in a claim just north of where the settlement was located. The Fargo company bought the nugget for $12,000. More than $500,000 worth of gold dust was shipped in1859. The channels were producing gold, while the ack of water hampered the efforts of the miners until the miner’s ditches were completed.
Two infamous names from the Gold Rush days that are frequently linked to San Andreas, are named Black Bart and Joaquin Murietta. Debonair and handsome, Black Bart was a gentleman bandit who seldom hurt the passengers or drivers. In 1883, Black Bart robbed the Sonora-Milton stage at Funk Hill, and is his hurried flight, left several articles behind. One of these articles that was left behind was a handkerchief with a laundry mark, which was linked back to a laundry in San Francisco and identified as belonging to one of the leading Rancho Calaveras citizens whose name was C.E. Bolton. Black Bart was captured and taken to San Andreas. where he confessed to the crime. Black Bart’s trial was a rather quick affair since he confessed to the crime and was sentenced to six years in San Quentin Prison.
Joaquin Murrieta was considered by some to be a Mexican Robin Hood, who, in 1849, being a gold rush hopeful arrived in California. Supposedly, Murrieta dealt with racism, his claim being stolen and his wife being raped, all of which contributed to his later bandit lifestyle. However, no reliable source provided any corroboration. It is known that Mr. Murrieta ruled gang of bandits that supposedly over two dozen Chinese and a dozen Anglo-American men. The gang members and Mr. Murrieta had a bounty was placed on their heads. In 1853, the legislature of California formed a band of Rangers to track them down. Supposedly, Mr. Murriety and his gang were captured and killed.
The first frame building in San Andreas was constructed in early 1851, and is known as the Bella Union. The building has served as a dance hall, a miner’s meeting hall, a gambling hall, and a court room. Social organizations, schools, hospitals, grocery stores, and banks, appeared as people settled, married and had families. With the gold rush came other business ventures, such as gambling halls, dance halls, saloons, livery stables, stages, and stores.
Also, industry was added for building that included utility Companies, saw mills, and one of the largest business, the Calaveras Cement Company. The Red Barn Museum, and the Calaveras County Museum are two of the museums that are located in San Andreas. The dairy barn once serviced the hospital for the County Hospital was located on those grounds.
Popularly known as the Gooney’s Saloon after one of the owners named Gooner Everson, is the Red Brick Saloon. This building dates back to 1858. In middle 1858, a fire devasted much of downtown San Andreas. After the fire, the property, was bought fire for $800, and the brick building was built for use as a saloon. In later years, the building served as an office, harness shop, saloon, tool store, liquor store and dry goods store. Finally, the building was returned to its original use as a restaurant and saloon.
The Bowman and Cornell Tin Shop and Hardware Store was not destroyed by the 1858 fire. However, it is one of the oldest San Andreas’ buildings. It was operated as a plumbing and hardware shop, as well as a tin shop until 1898 when it was converted for use for storage until 1922. After that, until the 1950’s, it was used as law offices in addition to being the Central Bank of Calaveras County. There was as elaborate tin ceiling on the interior of the main floor.
In 1867, the historic Calaveras County Courthouse was erected and was originally set back from Main Street and had a turnstile at the entrance. The courthouse was constructed at a cost of some $14,300, and the brick building served as offices for the clerk, auditor, supertindient of schools, the treasurer, and assessor. The building is currently part of the historic Calaveras County Museum, and the courtroom is sometimes still used as a meeting or jury room.
