California Historical Landmarks in Amador County
California Historical Landmark 30
Lancha Plana Buena Vista Road Six Miles South of Buena Vista
Lancha Plana (Flat Boat) was well settled by 1850 due to the hydraulic mining operations in the extensive gravel beds along the Mokelumne River. The Amador Dispatch newspaper was born here in 1856. Poverty Bar, Camp Opra, Copper Center, and Put's Bar were 'suburbs' of the larger town.
