The counties, cities and towns that make up the Mother Lode are diverse and rich in resources and culture. Each town has a unique history and here they can each proudly have their own voice. From the quaint towns of Sonora, Angels Camp and San Andreas to the blink-and-you-may-miss-it towns like Sheep Ranch and Vallecito each of the Mother Lode’s towns have a unique history and friendly small town atmosphere with the charming look and feel of the old west.

How diverse are the people?
We are away from the large cities of San Francisco and Sacramento and that is how we like it. These towns are comfortably secluded but if you feel like saying hello to a neighbor, there is a map on each town’s page.
