January 24, 1880

AMADOR DISPATCH, Jackson, California, Jan. 24, 1880  

* Rare old West publication

Jackson was founded in 1848 around a year-round spring, settled by American pioneers and then gold-seekers upon its discovery at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada range. It was also a convenient stopping place on the road from Sacramento to the southern mines.
The back leaf has a 2 1/2 by 4 1/2 piece clipped out, otherwise nice condition.
