The Founding Of San Andreas, California

In 1848, the town of San Andreas, California was named after the Catholic Saint Andreas and settled by Mexicans. Gold had been discovered, but the mining venture of surface gold was only for a short period of time.

In 1866, San Andreas became the county seat of Calaveras County. The town is still the seat of the county in present day.
