Holabird Western Americana Collections
Presents a preview of a recently discovered archive
of Calaveras County Historical Documents,
This fabulous archive was recently discovered. It contains upwards of 10,000 documents from dozens of the mining camps in and around Angles Camp, c 1880-1915. We were surprised to find illustrated letter sheets, a huge whiskey archive, a fantastic archive from Mitchler's Murphys Hotel, including colorful lithographed business cards. A remarkable archive from the assay department of the Utica mine is accompanied by an excellent document record of the mine's activities.
This fabulous collection will go up for auction later this year, so don’t miss your chance to
stop by and see these outstanding historic artifacts for yourself.
One day only, Saturday, August 30th.
10:00 am – 4:00 pm, Heritage Museum
