Sutter Creek is one of the most interesting and attractive of the Mother Lode boomtowns. Over $40 million in gold was pulled out of the mines here, and when the gold ran out, the town continued to prosper with a lively lumber industry. Through good luck and good planning, it has preserved the best of its charming downtown core, where second and third-?oor balconies on the ornate Victorian storefronts overhang not only the sidewalks, but the narrow main street as well, giving the town an especially quaint, old-world look.
