French Corral Gold Mine (United States)


It was one of the first of several historic California gold rush mining camps along the San Juan Ridge. The name was literal as the town grew around a mule corral built by the first settler in the area, a Frenchman, in 1849. Few original structures remain besides an old Wells Fargo Bank building.
