While miners worked nearby streams and veins
for gold, George W. Coulter served their needs
as merchant and hotel proprietor. His first
store, established in 1850, was a tent stocked
with merchandise hauled in by pack train.
Coulter and the town which bears his name
prospered, as Coulterville became the business
and social capital of this area.
