All About the California Gold Rush

Learn about the California Gold Rush.  

As Californians, we have the Gold Rush to thank for shaping our state’s history. The California Gold Rush, which began in early 1848, brought thousands of hopeful settlers to the region. As a result, the population boomed, and California was on the map. By the end of the Gold Rush in 1857, miners had extracted millions of dollars in gold from the California mountains. Not only was this period significant in California history, but also American history. Check out these fun facts about the California Gold Rush.

  • The rush of Immigration. While the California Gold Rush attracted as many Americans from the East Coast, they also had an influx of immigrants from Asia and South America.
  • Second Gold Rush. While California is famous for the Gold Rush, it’s not the only gold rush in American history. At the turn of the 19th century, North Carolina had a gold rush that lasted all of 30 years.
