Las Calaveras has been published by CCHS, quarterly, since 1952. It is a mass of wealth pertaining to the history of Calaveras County. When the founders of CCHS first came together their most important priority was to address the fact that the history of the County had not been written. Now 70 years later, Las Calaveras has fulfilled that need. Here you will find digitized copies of every issue as well as The Complete Las Calaveras which is a single file containing every issue.
