Acton, California

Founded in 1887 by gold miners who were working in the Red Rover Mine, the town of Acton was once considered for the State Capital of California. In 1889, Acton's first hotel and saloon, the 49er, was opened and you can still tie your horse on a side rail there today.

A place to call Home
