(Click the Photo to Read the Plaque)

Sloughhouse, prominent hotel and stage station on the road to the Amador mines, was a favorite stopping place for travellers, notably Leland Stanford. Constructed in 1850 by Jared Dixon Sheldon, it was destroyed by fire in 1890 and rebuilt the same year. Many descendants of pioneers of the community of Sloughhouse, which developed near Sheldon's establishment, still reside in this fertile valley of the Cosumnes.

California Registered Historical Landmark No. 575

Plaque placed by the California State Park Commission in cooperation with Liberty Parlor No. 213, Native Daughters of the Golden West, September 15, 1957.

Hops were once the major crop grown in the rich agricultural land around Sloughhouse and other parts of Northern California. The Signorotti farm, the last of Sloughhouse's family-owned hops farms, was featured on the television series, California's Gold.

Two landmarks associated with hops growing and processing in California are the Walters Ranch Hop Kiln in Sonoma County and the Site of the Wheatland Hop Riot in Yuba County.

The plaque for California Landmark 439: Sheldon Grist Mill is also located on this property.
