Dorado County is rich in history. Many of us can
link some how to this county. Many flocked to it's
rolling hills and rivers to 'strike it rich' in 1849
after James W. Marshall discovered gold here January
24th, 1848. The county seat is Placerville, also
known as "Hangtown". Numerous hangings occurred in
Placerville during the mining days, thus earning its
name. Some its notable residents over time have
included Levi Strauss, John Studebaker, Thomas
Kinkade, and Mark Hopkins Jr.
