Pine Grove in Amador County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
The Spagnoli family, proprietors of the main mercantile store and ranch, helped secure Clintons future by also developing the ditches that supplied water to placer claims, around the Clinton area. Once Amador County was formed in 1854, Clinton entrepreneur Thomas Loehr petitioned the county to declare the road from Jackson to Clinton a public road. In 1877 Clinton was still alive enough for the Garbarini brothers to build St. Peter and Paulís Catholic Church which remained, when the town disappeared. In 2003, descendants of the Garbariniís, returned to restore the small church and it was moved to the Kennedy Mine Foundationís grounds in the Jackson gate area.74
