Highway 49--Gold Rush Country: Sutter Creek, background, visitor information, shops

update/p.358

SUTTER CREEK

Visitor Information
Sutter Creek Visitor’s Center  71A Main St., (800) 400-0305, (209) 267-1344.



A Little Background
Seven gold mines were once located on this quiet Main Street that remains crammed with several blocks of vintage buildings.  Now it is lined with modern gold mines--antiques shops and art galleries.

The Antique Gardener  80 Main St., (209) 267-5551.  W-M 11-5.  This impossibly charming shoppe carries a blend of new and vintage garden items, the most darling seasonal items (the Easter egg selection is swoon-worthy), and a vast selection of soft kitchen towels adorned with all your favorite motifs.




Fineeye Gallery  71 Main St. (Old Hwy. 49), (209) 267-0571.  Daily 11-5.  Fine American art and crafts are what you’ll find here.
