Sutter Creek's living history museum

Save to my Account

While visiting the well-kept gold mining town of Sutter Creek, pop into this museum to learn about the history of the region, including walking down the aisles of shopping goods along the walls—check out the Chux disposable diapers. You can learn how John Sutter nixed the idea of setting up shop here and instead set up camp along the creek. Sure, Leland Stanford added to his riches by excavating the area, but Sutter Creek was more of a supply town than a gold mine.
