Historic DownTown Placerville

Placerville is a charming California gold rush town named after the placer gold deposits found in its river beds and hills in the late 1840's. The City of Placerville is centrally located between Sacramento, the State capitol, and South Lake Tahoe, world-famous recreation center. Situated above the fog line and below the snow line, Placerville boasts an ideal climate with four distinct seasons.

Accessibility to Placerville is via State Highway 49 and U.S. Highway 50, along one of the most traveled corridors in California. Placerville's treasured heritage is reflected in the historical, nineteenth century architecture of its downtown core. In addition, Placerville is the County seat and the center of financial, commercial, civic, and government activity.
