This quaint old building is on the roadside. Interesting to look at for a few minutes, but not inviting to explore further.

This is a great histric building, but it is completely fenced in and there is only a small area to park where the Historic marker is located.

This is a nice old ruin of the Butte store. It is right at the edge of the highway. You can't miss seeing it but be sure to pull off the road and be careful going to the front of it as the cars can wiz by. If you like old ruins it's worth a stop.

A wonderful building as many are in this neck of the woods! it is restricted access and in the middle of nothing one would do as good with the Wiki tour as opposed to seeing it live....

I have driven by this frame work of an old store from gold times. There isn't much to see and you can't get access, but it is Americana!

I live within 2 miles of this place and never stopped once. No one's done anything to restore this place its simply a wreck. Not much to see in terms of gold rush era architecture.. for that sort of thing go to Columbia State Park in Sonora

Thanks to folks in Amador County, this Gold-rush era stone store still is standing and it's conveniently located right along the Golden Chain Highway just a couple of miles south of Jackson!

This is a great gold-rush era building; but very dangerous to visit. The front of the building is located on the white-fog line of a very busy State highway. No place to park, except on the very edge of the highway. You cannot walk into or around the building...no public access. BE CAREFUL...

Well, there's not much to see. It's only one building, and I never have seen a place to park near it to get out and take pictures, but it is one of the most fascinating historic buildings in the Sierra Foothills to look at while whizzing by!

The gold country of California saw many mining towns arise, flourish, and then die as claims played out and people moved on. The Butte Store is all that remains of one town. Located about 2-3 miles south of Jackson (itself originally a gold mining town), the Butte Store sits right alongside Highway 49. There is a place to pull over... More
