With historic architecture, wine tasting, and wonderful arts, crafts and antique shopping, California’s original capital of Mariposa is still authentic and always original.  See the Mariposa Courthouse, the oldest courthouse still in operation west of the Rockies and one of the oldest granite-block jails in the state.  

Wildflowers carpet the rolling hills of Mariposa County every spring. Walk along Columbine, Indian Paint Brush, Dogwood and more – flower maps available at the Mariposa County Visitors Center. 

Don’t miss the California State Mining and Mineral Museum either!
