Rare Opportunity to Tour the Historic Utica Mansion
Angels Camp, CA – June 4, 2018 – The Angels Camp Museum Foundation will be hosting a special dinner event September 8, 2018 to benefit the Angels Camp Museum Foundation Lecture Series. Thanks to the current owner and resident, Tad Folendorf, the Utica Mansion will once again be open to the public for tours, complete with a history of the home followed by a delicious dinner catered by Pickle Patch on the Utica Mansion grounds.

“For many years, the mansion was a focal point for major social events of the Angels Camp community, “said Karen Strand, Angels Camp Museum Foundation President. “With the exception of minor alterations to the lower floor in the 1950s, the house today is as it was in the 1890s.”

The mansion began as a modest 2-story stone Federal house built by Utica Mine owner Robert Leeper in 1882. Leeper sold the mine and his home to Charles D. Lane. Early in the 1890s, Lane undertook an elaborate remodel that doubled the home’s size and transformed it into the mansion as it exists today.

“A lot of people don’t know that the house was also used as an office,” said Tad Folendorf, current Utica Mansion owner. “At one time the street in front of the houses adjacent to Utica park were offices of the various mines. In fact, the street adjacent to Utica Park was originally called ‘Office Street’ until it was changed to Utica Park Lane in the 1980s.”

Utica Mansion Event Tickets are $40 each for Museum members, $50 for non-members. For tickets contact Foundation President Karen Strand at (209) 795-1408 or
