The Heart of the Gold Country

Miners' Bend Historic Gold Mining Park

Miners' Bend Historic Gold Mining Park


Miners' Bend is an amazing historical display of gold-mining artifacts from the Argonaut, Sutter, and other gold mines.

Along with the mining artifacts, the new park will have informative plaques, picnic benches, trees and “Chinese” rock walls lining the park. The mining artifacts are from our colorful past, most of which have been donated by our local Amador County mines and other generous donors.

The park’s centerpiece, a 5-Head Stamp Mill built at Sutter Creek’s Knight Foundry in1882 is donated by the Louis Boitano Family. A replica of a head frame with a winch, motor, mine shaft and an ore car, or skip as it was called, has been erected next to the park entrance. The Skip was donated by the descendants of the John (Jack) Tone Family and was used in his mine in the Rail Road Flat Mining District.

Open and accessible every day, interesting for families and history buffs alike.
