Douglas Flat in Calaveras County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
The Italian Store
A Wells Fargo office also occupied the building with a safe and armed guard to protect the gold from the Table Mountain and along Coyote Creek. The mines included The Ohio, Hitchcock, Southwestern, Texas and the Lone Star. Some of these are located directly behind the store. The guard stationed at the rear of the building at its noticeable gun port. Should anyone try to bust the safe, he only had to poke his shotgun through the port that was aligned with the safe and pull the trigger.
