Welcome to Sutter Creek
the Jewel of the Mother Lode
The hardest part of constructing this webpage was finding a picture of
downtown Sutter Creek that would do it justice. No one picture can capture
the true charm and beauty of this very special Gold Country community!
Main Street is lined with dozens of historic Gold Rush buildings that today
house perhaps the area's finest selection of B&B's, unique shops, fine
restaurants, stately homes and so much more. Sutter Creek is as great as
it gets. Bring plenty of film, put on your walking shoes and, guaranteed,
you'll spend hours exploring this most historic and picturesque community.
|No visit here would be complete
without a tour of Knight Foundry,
the oldest (1873) water-powered
foundry in continuous operation in
the USA. Yes, it's still in business
|Another must see: the Monteverde Store
Museum. Erected in 1898, visitors are
transported to yesteryear. Everything is
authentic. Seniors will rekindle memories;
kids will witness firsthand how the general
store used to be. Please click on photo to
see what's inside!
Again, apologies for not being able to capture the "true essence" of
Sutter Creek. It must be seen first hand to be truely appreciated.
A reminder, this area is steeped in history and beauty. Sutter Creek's
Amador County is home to several world class wineries. Fishing,
water sports, skiing and gold panning are all close by.
