 Sonora, Tuolumne County California

Sonora, Tuolumne County, PO, Incorporated town and County seat, one of the most pleasantly located of mountain towns, is situated on both sides of Woods Creek, and is celebrated for the vast sums of gold that have been extracted from its placers. The town is reached by stage from Milton, 20 miles distant, the terminus of the Stockton and Copperopolis Railroad of 30 miles in length, and by stage is connected with the surrounding towns. It is regularly laid out and well built, and has numerous public buildings of fine appearance, and benevolent, literary and educational institutions of high character. The rich placers being measurably exhausted, Sonora lost much of her population and active business life; but trials have proven that the soil, where only gold was sought for, as well as the hill sides where it was not found, is capable of producing all the horticulturist or farmer may desire, and a healthy prosperity is promised. Vines, orchards and mulberry plantations now occupy the deserted claims, and the product is of excellent quality, remunerative to the grower and increasing in value. Two newspapers, the Tuolumne Independent and the Union Democrat, are published weekly.
