Buena Vista's store and house situated in Jackson Valley, was built by John Fitzsimmons, then sold to Sam Cook, then to James Norris and afterwards to Jacob and Verona Strohm. Once situated in Lancha Plana it was moved by the Chinese who discovered gold beneath its foundation. A bargain was made that it be moved six miles to Buena Vista. The Chinese and Sam Cook rebuilt it on this site. Its roof is supported by rafters made of Georgia Pine brought "round the horn." Built in 1850, it is one of Amador County's oldest landmarks.
