Gold Fever! Untold Stories of the California Gold Rush

This exhibit presents California before the fateful discovery of gold in the American River through the frenzied rush to the gold fields overland and by sea. The experience of vigilante justice, life in the rowdy gold camps, Gold Rush era commerce and farming, and the shaping of California's future are all explored.

From staggering success to unmitigated disaster, Gold Fever! spotlights the remarkable stories of individual Californios, women, Native Americans, adventurers, and gold seekers who emigrated from all parts of the world during the tumultuous and colorful Gold Rush era.

Originally developed by the California Council for the Humanities in collaboration with the Oakland Museum of California.
