Bett's Gold Coin

Entering Mariposa from the south, the first establishment on the left is Bett's Gold Coin, and saloon where gold diggers used to exchange their gold for cash during the gold rush.

There are many traces left from that day. There's a trap door under the bar counter that leads to a network of tunnels where the miners, once they had their cash, could get to the market without risking being robbed of their newly-earned cash.

Mariposa main street, looking south.
