The infamous earthquake fault that lies belowground in the western part of California has absolutely to do with the history of the community of San Andreas, California. The fact is that San Andreas, is one of early gold rush towns in California, which was named in honor of the first church that was established in Calaveras County named San Andreas, in 1848, by Mexicans. The community of San Andreas has many different museums, that include the Museum Complex in Calaveras County that features the original jail and courthouse.
In 1848, Mexican gold miners arrived in the settlement of San Andreas and settled by community in 1848.There were more than 1,000 tents located all over the hillside. In 1852, a canvas structure served as the first church in the area that that had a simple cross hanging over the door, which designated it a church of the Roman Catholic faith. The Roman Catholic Church was named for St. Andrew. The name if the settlement, San Andreas, was taken from the church.
A large gold nugget was discovered in a claim that was located just north of San Andreas, and the Wells Fargo Company bought the nugget for some $12,000. More than $500,000 worth of gold dust was shipped from the settlement in 1859. While the lack of water hampered the miner’s efforts, until the mining ditches were completed, and the channels were producing gold.
Two infamous names from the period of the Gold Rush days, and were associated with San Andreas, include Joaquin Murietta and Black Bart. Debonair and handsome, Black Bart was a bandit who was also as gentleman, and never harmed passengers nor drivers. In 1883, the Sonora-Milton stage was help up at Funk Hill by Black Bart. However, in his hurried flight, he left many articles behind. A handkerchief that had a laundry mark was one of these items. It just so happens that the laundry mark belonged to a laundry in San Francisco and a laundry mark turned out to belong to a man who was one of the leading citizens of San Andreas named C.E. Bolton. Black Bart was quickly arrested and returned to San Andreas where he admitted to the theft. His trial was held in the San Andreas court room, and he was sentenced to six years in Prison at San Quentin. The jail where he was held is still standing and is a part of the Historical Museum Complex in Calaveras County.
In 1849, Joaquin Murietta arrived in the area hoping to strike it rich. Many people considered him to be a Mexican Robin Hood. In 1854, a dime novel was sold, which turned out to be a rather contemporary biography. In this biography Murietta encountered racism, which involved his wife being raped and the theft of his claim, all of which contributed to his bandit lifestyle sometime later. However, no reputable source can corroborate this. What is known is that he was the leader of a group of bandits, which was reputed to have killed over two dozen Chinese men as well as a dozen Anglo-Americans. As a result, a bounty was placed on the bandit’s heads and a band of Rangers formed by the legislature of California tracked them down. The group of bandits were located and two of them, which included Joaquin Murietta, were killed in 1853.
Originally, the miners of the Gold Rush era camped in small tents, on the hillsides, mall tents, and the first frame structure in San Andreas known as the Bella Union was constructed in early 1851. This building served as a dance hall, a meeting hall for miners, a gambling house, a saloon, and the court room.
Other business ventures came along with the Gold Rush era that included livery stables, stage coach stations, and general stores. Social organizations, schools, hospitals, grocery stores, and banks were added as the pioneers settled, married and had families. Also, industry was added for building that included utility companies, saw mills, and one of the largest enterprises, the Cement Company in Calaveras County.
In 1866, the County Seat of the county became San Andreas, and is still the County Seat. Originally constructed in 1966, The Government Center, which is located on Mountain Ranch Road, has expanded over the years, and has recently added a jail facility as well as a state-of-the art-court house.
There are two amazing museums in San Andreas that include the Red Barn Museum, and the Museum Complex in Calaveras County, which is located on historic Main Street, and is housed in the Court House and Hall of Records, and includes the upstairs portion of the Masonic Hall and Odd Fellows, which were constructed in 1856.
The Red Barn Museum, is located at the Government Center and is housed in a former dairy barn that once serviced the County Hospital that was once located on those grounds. This museum is indicative of the rich history of Calaveras County and its residents.
