41st Annual AAUW Home Tour
April 20, 2013
11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The 2013 Home Tour will be held in Jackson, the county seat of Amador County. Located at the crossroads of Highways 49 and 88, Jackson was established in 1848, early in the Gold Rush, and area mines produced millions of dollars in bullion. A blend of the old and new, Jackson retains its small-town charm. Yesterday is evidenced by Victorian neighborhoods, a pioneer cemetery, and an emphasis on historic preservation. While the past is revered, Jackson is living very much in the present. The region is home to a new hospital, modern subdivisions and many entertainment and recreational opportunities.
The tour will showcase area history through the restored 1852 National Hotel, the three-story Mine Office at the Kennedy Mine, and two vintage residences. Visitors will also tour a contemporary Mediterranean home set in a vineyard and olive grove, and an Italianate-style home surrounded by lovely gardens. Another historic residence will host a tea with homemade cookies, and your chance to view our opportunity quilt, Symmetry in Motion. Two of the homes will also feature wine tasting and an art show.
Proceeds from the tour benefit the Amador Branch
scholarship program for local girls and women.
