County Courthouse (1863)

El Dorado County was founded February 18, 1850 as one of 27 original counties making up the new state of California. The gold discovery at Coloma in 1848 sparked one of the biggest gold rushes ever, and changed the region quickly and drastically. Elevations range from 200 feet to over 10,000 at the crest of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Industries include lumber, mining, pears, apples, cherries, plums, wine grapes and wineries, cattle, sheep, light manufacturing, and tourism.

Placerville ~ [Placer (American Spanish): gravel or sand containing precious metal deposits; Ville (Old French): village or small rural town.
