Downtown Placerville
ca. 1880's

 El 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.
