 Jackson Amador County California

Jackson, Amador County, PO and county seat, 55 miles east south east of Sacramento, is on Jackson Creek, a short distance north of the Mokelumne River, and on the stage road from Sacramento to Mokelumne Hill and the "Big Trees" of Calaveras. A railroad in course of construction from Stockton to Ione, 12 miles distant, will increase conveniences of transportation and travel.

The former resource of the place were its rich placer mines, but now independence is upon the quartz mines and the fruit growing and wine manufacturing in the vicinity, from these interests it promises an increasing prosperity of a high order. The soil is very favorable for fruit growing, and a large ditch, constructed for mining purposes, supplies water for irrigation. Oranges grow in the open air, and the grapes are of excellent quality, from which large quantities of wine and brandy are made. The place is well built, hotels of the first class, and the private residences indicate both taste and comfort.

Two weekly newspapers, the Dispatch and Ledger, are published here.
