California State Historic Landmark 456
#456 Camp Site of Boston-Newton Party
On this site the Boston-Newton Joint Stock Association encamped on
September 26, 1849. The company left Boston April 16 and arrived at Sutter's Fort September 27,
after a remarkable journey across the continent. A rich store of written records preserved by
these pioneers has left for posterity a fascinating picture of the gold rush.
