Mokelumne City, California

Mokelumne City (California State Historical Monument #162) is a ghost town in San Joaquin County, California, United States. Once the second largest town in San Joaquin County, it was established in 1850 and destroyed by the floods of 1862. [1]

Mokelumne City arose as a rival trade centre to Stockton in 1850, near the mouth of the Cosumnes River, at the confluence of the Cosumnes and Mokelumne Rivers. Sloops built there ran direct to San Francisco. It rose to poll 172 votes, but the flood of 1862 so ravaged the place that it never recovered.[2]

The site of the former city is located about 14 miles north-west of Lodi, California. It is 200 feet north of the intersection of Cameron Road and Thornton Road, 3 miles north of Thornton, California.
