#258 Fourth Crossing
Located on the Stockton-Murphys Road at the fourth crossing of the Calaveras River, this early mining settlement, once called Foremans, was famous in the 1850s for its rich placer ores. Later, it became an important stage and freighting depot and served the southern mines until after the turn of the century.
