Amador County is the only county in the state of
California to be named after a native Californian, Jose Maria
Amador, a soldier, rancher and miner, who was born in San
Francisco in 1794 to Sergeant Pedro Amador, a Spanish soldier
who settled in California in 1771. In Spanish the word Amador
means "one who loves". Jose and his native Americans mined along
a creek in 1848 and 1849. This creek became known as Amadore's
Creek, and soon after, camps called Amadore Crossing and South
Amadore or Amadore City were founded. Jackson is the county seat
of Amadore county. The most prominent historical landmark is the
Kennedy Mine which began operation in 1860 till it's closure
during World War II in 1942, it was the deepest gold mine in
North America, 5,912 feet.
