Welcome to Sonora & Jamestown

Today, people en route to Yosemite National Park use Sonora as a staging post. The historic center is so well preserved that it’s a frequent backdrop in films.

Smaller Jamestown is 3 miles south of Sonora, just south of the Hwy 49/108 junction. Founded around the time of Tuolumne County’s first gold strike in 1848, today the place limps along on tourism and antiques. It has its charm but is only a few blocks long.
