A traveler’s directory and historical narrative for visitors, prospectors, and settlers on the Gold Dust trail.

Mariposa was founded as a mining camp. The county lies at the southern end of the Mother Lode, and Europeans were attracted to Mariposa by gold. During the 19th century California Gold Rush, its streams were panned and deep mines worked the underground veins.

At one time John C. Fremont lived here and owned claims to much of the mineral wealth of Mariposa. He later was the first United States Senator from the state, and the first Republican candidate for President.
