Amador County is Rich in History

The county seat is the town of Jackson, incorporated in 1905. Other incorporated communities are Amador City, Ione, Plymouth and Sutter Creek. Key state highways through Amador County are Highways 49, stretching generally north-south, and Highway 88, running east-west. Amador County is among the last in the state offering a genuine, non-commercialized glimpse of the past. The historic building and covered sidewalks are, for the most part, just as they were a century ago, not Hollywood-type reproductions. Everything about Amador County is authentic, and residents take great pains to keep it that way.
