Mokelumne Hill

The old towns from the California gold rush days seem to draw me in every time.  Usually, hubby and plan our visits ahead of time.  This time we just sort of stumbled upon Mokelumne Hill.  We were out with a group of friends and someone suggested that we have lunch at the Historic Leger Hotel, on Main Street in Mokelumne Hill.  I had not heard of this little town before that day, so this turned out be a little treat for me.  Best as I can tell from our short stop there, is that the town seems to take up only one block of Main Street. 

The first site that caught my interest was the Community Church just about a block before the town starts.


After we ate a great lunch at the Leger Hotel, which I later learned is supposed to be haunted.  Thankfully, I experienced nothing unusual. 


The shoppers in the group headed out after lunch to check out the shops – I headed out to do a bit of exploring down Main Street.  The guys lingered in the restaurant for a while, giving us girls some time to shop (or photograph in my case).




The girls gathered back at the hotel entrance about the time the guys were exiting the building.  This brought to end our short visit to the town.  On our way out of town, I caught site of another little church – yep, they gave in and stopped so I could photograph it too.


Once back at home, I did a google search of Mokelumne Hill.  I learned that Mark Twain worked as a reporter there.  I definitely want to go back when I have more to really explore.

  2. Thanks for taking us on this sweet little journey. Loved the photos, especially of the churches and the old fashioned heating stove (I think that's what it is?) at the hotel :-)
