Coloma Road - Rescue
California State Historic Landmark 747
#747 The Coloma Road
Past this point on the old Coloma Road, running between Sutter's Fort and his sawmill on the American River, James W. Marshall rode with the first gold discovered at Coloma on Jan 24, 1848. Travelled by thousands to and from the diggings, this road became the route of California's earliest stageline, established in 1849 by James E. Birch.
