After The Gold Rush

Asked to pick the worst year 
ever, film director Peter Segal chose 1848, “the year gold was discovered at Sutter’s Mill. Until then, you could find a nice piece of land in California, pitch your tent, and call it home. 
The housing market here has been 
a living hell ever since.”
