There we are, right at the foot of Church on the West end of Main Street, Plymouth. If you make it ’round the round-a-bout, head west until you roll past the big Victorian house… you will know when you see it.
Our little spot is right there in the sunshine… used to be a feed store, TV repair, a barber shop, laundromat and an Ice Cream Parlor. Now it’s Local. Stop in, we will tell you all about our place and our town – Plymouth, CA.
Amador County is ground zero Gold Rush country and here at Local, we have a local tour of must see backroad Mining Points of Interest for an easy car or ebike tour.
Gold Mine Car and eBike Tour (25 Mins)
A perfect drive for exploring historical sites throughout the local area. The tour begins in Plymouth at Amador Local, across Main Street from a 19th century granary warehouse, you will follow the route past mine sites and ruins. The tour offers a easy car tour of gorgeous Amador County scenery and a Motherlode of “can’t miss” sites.
Ruins along the route serve as a testament to the once loud and attractive gold mining industry. Country roads take you through Drytown, New Chicago, and Bunker Hill. Take note to spot the first settlement ruins at Upper Crossing, alongside Amador Creek. Down Turner Road at Stringbean Alley you might find the sign noting the location of the ghost town, Herbertville… see if you can find the remains of a stone store behind the trees.
