San Andreas & the Treat Marble Quarry
Calaveras County

Looking Up Historical Main Street - San Andreas
Looking Up the Historical Main Street

We next visited San Andreas. The town's old buildings are located on one short street and are in very good condition. The old County Hall of Records, which is today the County Museum, is built of brick trimmed with white marble quarried locally. Other stone used in construction of these buildings were granite, brick, adobe, and Calaveras schist.

We tried to locate the nearby Treat Marble Quarry, which was reportedly located one and a quarter miles east of San Andreas and produced white and variegated marble; but we were unable to locate it.
