Drytown Real Estate

With the gold mining era now long gone, Drytown is now surrounded by open fields and vineyard as far as the eye can see. It's location roughly 45 minutes from Sacramento provides plenty of open space for farmers and vintners, while its relatively close proximity to California's capital city also allows local home owners to enjoy plenty of big city amenities and attractions that are only just a short drive away. 

As for the local Drytown real estate market, don't expect to find a deep inventory of available homes in the area. Most of the 200 people who live in the area have been here for years, and that's not likely to change anytime soon. Land and undeveloped property on the other hand is something that's listed fairly often in Drytown, which not only provides potential home buyers with plenty of home building opportunities but also more than enough space and privacy to enjoy the spectacular countryside that helps define the Drytown, CA community.

Living in Drytown CA

Drytown is labeled as Amador County's oldest city, and the first in which gold was discovered. Its name was derived from Dry Creek, which almost always runs dry in the summer, and anymore seems to now stay dry more often than not. Today, State Route 49 acts as Drytown's primary thoroughfare, and although limited, you'll still find several antique shops located along this stretch, and even Drytown's last remaining tavern—The Drytown Club. 

The decline of Drytown initially started back in 1857 when gold was running low and a fire nearly destroyed the entire city. Rather than rebuild, most of Drytown's residents packed up and moved to another Amador County mining town nearby. Although at the time the misfortunes of Drytown seemed quite devastating, today's residents love its small town charm and laid-back lifestyle, and what remains has now been registered as a California Historical Landmark.
