Coarsegold

Coarsegold, once a sleepy town on the way toYosemite National Park on Highway 41, is now a booming community in Eastern Madera County.

The town of Coarsegold is 7 miles south of Oakhurst on Highway 41.  Mining flourished in the Coarsegold area from 1849 to 1865.  By 1850 “Coarsegold Gulch” boasted 10,000 residents.  Although Coarsegold was named for the gold mined in the area, coal and quartz were also plentiful.  Take a look at the monument about the area in Coarsegold’s Historic Village, located on the corner of Hwy 41 and Road 415.  The grapevine supported by the trellis in the Historic Village is one of the oldest living vines in California.

Points of Interest include the Coarsegold Historic Museum (south of Lucky Lane) and the Historic Village at Hwy 41 and Raymond Road/Road 415.  The area is dotted with old mines, but many are on privately owned property.

The Coarsegold region ranges in elevation from approximately 1,200 feet to 3,000 feet. Downtown Coarsegold offers a grocery store (The Coarsegold Market), Busse’s Ace Hardware Store, numerous galleries and gift shops, several restaurants, fast food, convenience stores and gas stations, Yosemite Bank and the Coarsegold Historic Village with arts and craft shops and year round community events.  Coarsegold's population is approximately 9,500.

Coarsegold Historic Museum - 642-4448

The Coarsegold Historic Museum, located just south of Coarsegold on Highway 41, offers visitors a glimpse of life in the area as far back as the early 1800’s.

The complex is located on property that once was part of an old horse-drawn-freight wagon road (pre-Hwy 41) and an original historical adobe freight way-station. The 110+ year old building is a “packed adobe” made of mud and rock. After its use as a way-station, it was used for many years as a home. It is currently in the process of restoration and the progress can be viewed by visitors to the museum.

The grounds also have a barn that the dedicated volunteers of the organization restored. It now houses the museum. In it artifacts and history of the region can be viewed. Also in the building are the research library and the Historical Society’s office.

Various sections of the museum represent the Coarsegold Market and Supply, a blacksmith and tool shop, a gold-panner hard at work, a tack shop, the kitchen of the Picayune School, an area of Indian artifacts, and an extensive display of pictures and articles about eastern  Madera County. The barn has been dedicated to Ethel Kennedy who originally owned the property.

The Coarsegold Historic Museum is owned and operated by the Coarsegold Historical Society, an educational nonprofit entity. The Coarsegold Historical Society was formed in 1981 to study and share the wonderful history of Eastern Madera County and the area known as Coarsegold in particular. From research the book “As We Were Told” was produced. Members interviewed 102 “old time” families (dating to the early 1800s) of the region and complied their stories to share with others.

In 1994 the "on">Picayune School (in use from 1913 to 1956) was moved to the property. It was an elementary school especially for the local Chukchansi Yokut Indians. w:st="on">Picayune <st1:placetype w:st="on">School is the only one-room schoolhouse in the local mountain area to be displayed as a school and is furnished with items dating to the period of its original use. It is now restored and listed on the California Register of Historic Sites and is a designated local Historical Landmark by the Madera County Board of Supervisors.
