Valley Springs used to be a place on the way to other places or a way station, for most of its existence. Valley Springs would soon be on the way to the timber industry, to the mines, to the Big Trees, and to the foothills. Valley Springs only became a place to go to rather than go through during in the later decades of the 1900’s. These days, with three different recreational reservoirs in the immediate region, including the Hogan, Pardee, and the Camanche, and having experienced considerable residential real estate booms that were prompted by affordable and abundant land in addition to the commuter proximity to the urban centers of Sacramento, Lodi, and Stockton, the rural community of Valley Springs has become a major center of population and influence in Calaveras County at the dawn of the 2000’s, for the first time in its history.
Although no permanent American Indian village or prehistoric settlement has been identified, the existence of grinding rocks in the area suggests that for what were most likely bands of the Mi-Wuk and Yokut Indian tribes for hundreds of years that traveled through the higher elevations in order to spend some part of their winters traveling through what is currently known as Valley Springs. Before returning home in the spring, they would gather acorns for food and trade. During the rule of the Spanish, although relatively untouched, the Mi-Wuk Indian tribes were pushed deeper into the hills with the sudden and massive influx of miners and others ignited by the California Gold Rush. With that, the seasonal migration to the Valley Springs area abrupted ended.
Although for many pioneers turned miners, gold encouraged a relocation to California, there wasn’t much of it in the Valley Springs region, other than the Gowin Mine that was located somewhat north of Paloma that was first mined in 1850 and until 1908, remained a major operation. However, with the Gold Rush came horse stages, ox freighters, and mule trains, which were all mainly from Stockton, on their way to the camps in the foothills. A man whose name was Dudley pitched a tent that housed a store and a saloon in Double Springs, which laid claim to being the first European pioneer in the region, in1849. It wasn’t long before small farms and large ranches were established in order to provide food for the close by and ever-increasing population of the Gold Country.
Also emerging were stage stops next to the Mokelumne and Stockton Road, was what is currently known as Highway-26. These stage stops included Pattee’s Place, the Spring Valley House, the North America House, and the Tremont House. These served the travelers and provided lodging overnight. The east-west Chaparral Road, currently known as Highway-12 linked the region with San Andreas to the east while intersecting roads led to Copperopolis and Jenny Lind to the south, Sutter Creek and Jackson to the north. The critical crossroads where the Mokelumne and Stockton Hill Road that connected with the Chaparral Road and on to Valley Springs.
At least in name Valley Springs came from Spring Valley. The Spring Valley House, which was in operation by 1857, was located West of Double Springs, and owned by a man named D.W. Briant. A wooden, three-story building, with bedrooms on the first two floors, while the third floor was used for dances and public meetings. Mr. Briant helped to establish the Spring Valley School District in 1866, in a region that is currently known as Valley Springs. In 1868 Mt. Briant sold his land and the following owner sold the deed to the Spring Valley House to a man named Robert Eproson in 1870. In 1872, Mr. Eproson came to be the initial postmaster of Valley Springs, as opposed to Spring Valley. As opposed to all other previously known histories, the evidence shows that the name change happened some twelve years prior to the arrival of the railroad. The reason for the switch seems to be that there was another Northern California post office in Colusa County already known as Spring Valley. However, the residents of the region continued to refer to the area as Spring Valley rather than the name of the post office.
The post office in Valley Springs was discontinued in 1879. However, it was reestablished with a man named Andrew Newhall, being the postmaster as well as new owner of the Spring Valley House. In 1853, the Spring Valley House burned to the ground. Nearly immediately the postal duties were assigned to a man named John Kellogg Pattee, who had settled on his adjacent ranch in 1852 where he kept a hotel and raised sheep and welcomed all travelers. It is probable that the Post Office in Valley Springs also simultaneously relocated to Pattee’s Place, which was identified by the Castle Rock, which was located two miles east of what is currently known as Valley Springs. Between 1865 and 1871, Pattee’s Place was a post office and therefore, it would have been an easy for the locals to use that post office.
