Auburn Miners
ca. 1860's
***********


Placer County was created from parts of Sutter and Yuba Counties in 1851.
"Placer" is probably a contraction of the words plaza de oro (the place of gold)
and in Spanish means "a place near a river where gold is found." The county derived its name from the numerous places where the method of extracting gold from the earth, called placer mining, was practiced.

County Seat: Auburn
Year Organized: 1851
Square Miles: 1,404
