Grayson's 150th anniversary
Terry Woodward

100 Silver (numbered)
100 Aluminum
150 Antique Bronze
150 Bronze

THE STORY: This medal commemorates the 150th anniversary of the founding of Grayson, California. One of the oldest settlements in Stanislaus County, Grayson was known as "the gateway to the gold mines" during the 1850's. This was due to its proximity to the local river. The medal depicts the old Grayson Hotel at which most travelers stayed prior to heading up river to the Mother Lode area or on their way back from it. Grayson lost much of its importance after the railroads came in and eliminated much of the river traffic.
