The Methodist Church

The Methodist Church was financed in part by gamblers, no doubt wishing to cover all their bets. Established in 1852, the present church was built in 1861 for “the use of all sects on Sundays and for education purposes on week days.” It is located on Seco Street, on a slight rise one block east of Main. The building has a rather unique design, making it one of the finest Gold Rush era churches in the county.
