Coarsegold

Then
This unusual name reflects the fact that a group of Texas miners discovered coarse gold in the nearby creek in the early 1850s. They named their settlement Coarse Gold Gulch. This was later renamed Texas Flat, however that name didn't have much staying power among Californians!

Coarsegold produced the first deep lode mine in the region, but time revealed that this wasn't the area's true wealth. Cattle, sheep and hogs headed for Stockton became treasure as ranching became the way of life in the latter half of the 19th century.

Now
That's why Coarsegold - population 7,280 - is still known for its large ranches. In fact, native ranchers still hold huge cattle drives to the cooler high country every summer. Visitors can learn more about Coarsegold's colorful heritage from The Gold Gulch Museum and the Coarsegold Historical Society Museum.
