Big Oak Flat
For the first time in decades the public will be afforded the opportunity to tour the 1850 era Wells Fargo (Gamble) Building in Big Oak Flat. An open house with guided tours will be held on July 25th from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm. The adjacent 1901 vintage Cobden home will also be open for viewing. Both buildings are on the National Register of Historic Places.
The property, known as the Gamble Block, was donated to the Southern Tuolumne County Historical Society (STCHS) by the Cobden family in 2007.
The Open House will feature knowledgeable docents relating building histories, stories of the past, and a presentation of STCHS preservation plans for the Gamble Building.
This preservation effort will require the support of many volunteers, donations, and grants.To cover expenses for the event a $10 per person donation is requested. There will be snacks, period music, and beverage tasting hosted by local wineries.
