Waymarking in Amador and El Dorado Counties

With my company spread around Northern California and my job taking me to most of the sites, I started more than five and a half years ago visiting, photographing and mapping California Historical Landmarks across Northern California. As we have traveled on vacation over the last few years, I have expanded that to other parts of California and other states [Arizona, Idaho, New York, Nevada and Pennsylvania] and to include National Register of Historic Places and some E Clampus Vitus historical markers.

Wednesday morning, I started in Plymouth.  I stopped at thirteen California Historical Landmarks.  These included:  Plymouth Trading Post [#470]; Oleta (Old Fiddletown) [#35]; D'Agostini Winery [#762]; Old Dry Diggins-Old Hangtown-Placerville [475]; Methodist Episcopal Church [#767]; Site of Studebaker's Shope [#142]; Wakamatsu Tea and Silk Farm Colony [#815]; Gold Discovery Site [#530]; Coloma Road-Coloma [#748]; Marshall Monument [#143]; Marshall's Blackshop Shop [#319]; and Georgetown [#484].

Working my way north to Georgetown, I stopped in the early afternoon and had a couple of beers with Larkin at the Georgetown Hotel before heading home.
