Murphys The Queen of the Sierra’s
If you’re looking for a place to escape the hustle and bustle of city life, but aren’t quite ready for complete mountain seclusion, then Murphys is the place for you. Perfectly located at an elevation of about 2500 feet above sea level, Murphys is a desirable destination year-round. With charming cafes and shops, cobblestone paths, beautiful Victorian homes, an assortment of wineries and a rich and colorful history, Murphys exudes an intimate feel.
Established in 1848, the town first served as a trading post and began operations in gold mining. The town still holds on to some semblance of its ancient past, and buildings bearing iron shutters and thick stone walls serve as a reminder of its history. The town has certainly changed in the last 165 years but has not lost its scintillating quality. Babbling brooks, blackberry bushes, and a plethora of year-round activities keep this quaint and charming, wine-rich foothill town bustling with residents and visitors alike. With annual events like the Irish Day Parade and the Grape Stomp, Murphys has established itself as an integral and beloved part of Calaveras County.
