Eureka Street Inn holds the special distinction of being located just steps away from the historic and now famous Knight Foundry. Sutter Creek’s Historic, Industrial Crown Jewel. The Knight Foundry, set in the heart of Sutter Creek, California, is America’s last water-powered foundry and machine shop. Established in 1873 by Samuel Knight, this extraordinary facility includes the unique historic equipment and machinery, still in place in its original context, just as it was during its Gold Rush-era heyday.
Knight Foundry is nationally recognized as a National Historic Mechanical Engineering Landmark and a California Registered Historical Landmark. The Foundry is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was named by the National Trust for Historic Preservation as one of America’s eleven most endangered historic places.
Eureka Street Inn enjoys its own rich history. See story below. This was one of the reasons that Chuck and Sandy Anderson purchased the bed and breakfast in 2002.
Says Sandy Anderson: “Chuck and I were well-versed in the stresses produced by living a full and varied life. Prior to becoming innkeepers, while raising a house full of children, Chuck was the Director of the Criminal Justice Program at Cabrillo College in Santa Cruz. I was Senior Vice President of Marketing for Coast Commercial Bank and has served on the City Council for Sutter Creek for multiple terms. I also served as Mayor of Sutter Creek. I now serves as the President of Board for Amador Country Tourism.”
Sadly, Chuck passed away in 2012. Sandy continues to operate Eureka Street Inn. Not infrequently, her grown children and grandchildren help with social media, cleaning, serving breakfast and hospitality.
Whether spending time with a loved one on the comfortable front porch, meeting new friends at breakfast or planning the best use of your time in Sutter Creek and the Amador Wine Country with Sandy Anderson, you are sure to return home filled with beautiful memories!
