Dutch Flat California Gold Rush Photos & Information
 

 


Dutch Flat
COUNTY: Placer
 

Dutch Flat was named for 1800s Dutch storekeepers Joseph and Charles Dornbach. It is located near mountain recreation areas where tourists and locals enjoy snow and water skiing, fishing, biking, kayaking, gold panning and hiking..

 

Dutch Flat in Placer county, California, is located mid-way between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe, close to Interstate Highway 80. Famous for its hydraulic mines, Dutch Flat remains one of the towns that best showcases the era in which gold was discovered.

 

Dutch Flat was settled in 1851 by a group of German miners and had its first post office five years later. Thousands of miners worked in hydraulic mining in this region that gained prominence not only for gold but also for transportation as a stage station. Dutch Flat became one of the largest, most important towns in the county during the mid-1860's.  In the fall of 1866, after the railroad had reached Cisco, 20 miles farther up the ridge, Dutch Flat lost much of it's importance as a stage stop.

Dutch Flat looks like a New England village set amongst tall pines of the Sierra Nevada and is sometimes thought of as the Athens of the foothills. An Opera House where Mark Twain lectured, a thriving amateur dramatic society and debating society once graced this gem of the Sierra Nevadas that today remains tucked away in time for guests to visit and enjoy.
