History[edit] After the discovery of gold at Sutter's Mill in nearby Coloma, California, by James W. Marshall in 1848 sparked the California Gold Rush, the small town now known as Placerville was known as Dry Diggin's after the manner in which the miners moved cartloads of dry soil to running water to separate the gold from the soil. Later in 1849, the town earned its most common historical name, "Hangtown", because of the numerous hangings that had occurred there.[10] According to the museum guide at the Fountain & Tallman Museum, there were only three hangings that occurred after three men on horseback came into town with guns ablaze. The name stuck after that. By about 1850, the temperance league and a few local churches had begun to request that a more friendly name be bestowed upon the town. The name was not changed until 1854 when the City of Placerville was incorporated. At its incorporation Placerville was the third largest town in California. In 1857 the county seat was then moved from Coloma to Placerville, where it remains today. Placerville was a central hub for the Mother Lode region's mining operations.[11] The town had many services, including transportation (of people and goods), lodging, banking, and had a market and general store. The history of hard-rock mining is evidenced by an open and accessible Gold Bug Park & Mine, now a museum with tours and books.[12] The Southern Pacific Railroad once had a branch line that extended from Sacramento to Placerville. The track was abandoned in the 1980s. The Camino, Placerville and Lake Tahoe Railroad (now abandoned) also operated an 8-mile (13 km) shortline that operated between Camino, California, and Placerville until June 17, 1986. As of March 29, 2007, 52 miles (84 km) of the right-of-way have been purchased by the city of Folsom, and 18 miles (29 km) of track have been restored. Plans are in motion for a tourist train along the route by 2015.[8] The town's first post office opened in 1850.[9] Placerville is now registered as California Historical Landmark #701.[8]

(June 2017) (Learn how and when to remove this template message) Site of the Pony Express[edit] Located on the corner of Main and Sacramento Street is the site of the Pony Express where 80 riders including William, “Buffalo Bill” Cody, relayed mail by horseback between Missouri and Sacramento. The Pony Express ran from April 1860 through June 1861 when the telegraph came into use. Cary House Hotel[edit] The Cary House Hotel is located at 300 Main Street and was built in 1857. The three-story hotel was built out of brick to help prevent the devastation that was served upon several local hotels that were destroyed during the fires that destroyed a large portion of Placerville in 1857. The Cary House was also the hub of the Wells Fargo stage lines. It’s estimated that more than $900 million of gold and silver passed through the doors of the Cary House during the transfer between the Mother Lode and the Nevada Comstock. In 1908, John Augustus Raffetto bought the Cary House. In 1915, he demolished and rebuilt it with three stories that had fifty-four rooms (fifteen with baths), coffee shop, and dining room. His oldest son, Lloyd Raffetto, renamed it the Raffles Hotel. When the Raffettos sold it, the new owners brought back the name "Cary House."[13][14][15][16] Historical figures known to have stayed at the hotel include Mark Twain (who used to write for the Mountain Democrat in Placerville), President Ulysses S. Grant and John Studebaker. Hollywood figures, such as actress Bette Davis, have graced the hotel. Most recently, Brooke Shields and Lou Diamond Phillips filmed a movie at the hotel.[17] Site of the famous Hangman’s Tree[edit] California State Historic Landmark #141 indicates the site of the Hangman’s Tree located at 305 Main Street. The 1849 hanging of robbers and murderers inspired “Hangtown” one of the town’s early names. Masonic Lodge Building[edit] The Masonic lodge is located at 419 Main Street. The three-story brick building was constructed in 1893. This is the only still standing building that was originally erected with three stories within the Placerville city limits. Prior to the building of the Masonic Lodge, the site was the home of the Nebraska Saloon and an undertaking business. Placerville Hardware[edit] Placerville Hardware is located at 441 Main Street and is the oldest continuously operating hardware store west of the Mississippi. The Bell Tower[edit] The Bell Tower located near the center of Main Street was erected in 1865 to alert the fire fighters and townspeople in the event of a fire. Fountain and Tallman Soda Works[edit] The Fountain and Tallman Soda Works is located at 542 Main Street and is constructed of brick and stone survived the fire of 1856. Spring water obtained from a fresh water spring behind the building was bottled and sold to miners. Site of John Studebaker Shop[edit] John Studebaker's Shop was located at 543 Main Street. The former automobile maker, use to build wheelbarrows on Main Street Placerville. The wheelbarrows were used by miners during the California Gold Rush. The building no longer exists, but the City of Placerville pays homage to this historic figure by holding a wheelbarrow race during the annual El Dorado County Fair. Placerville Soda Works Building[edit] The United States Department of the Interior placed the John Pearson Soda Works on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985. This property located at 594 Main Street was purchased in 1859 by ice merchant, John Pearson. The property included a mine that burrowed into a hill. Pearson built a stone building around the mine taking advantage of naturally cool temperature of the mine tunnel to store the ice. Pearson sold many other items including soda water, cream soda and syrups. After his death, Pearson’s sons added the second story in 1897 to use as a bottling factory for the burgeoning soda business. The sons later sold the business in 1904 and the new owners renamed the business Placerville Soda Works. Druid Monument[edit] Corner of Main and Cedar Ravine The Druid Monument was placed by the fraternal organization on this site in 1926. The monument is in recognition of the first Druid Grove in California. Site of Old Dry Diggins Mining Camp[edit] Historical Landmark No 475 observes the significance of the site of Old Dry Diggins Mining Camp. The camp was established in 1848 during the California Gold Rush. The camp was located on the banks of the Hangtown Creek and served as a supply center for miners and a transportation hub. The camp inspired, “Dry Diggins”, one of the city’s historic names. The Plumado House[edit] The 1 ½ story, Pioneer style, Plumado House, was built sometime around 1860. The house is built into the hillside that was created by mining activity. The lower story is beneath the hillside and has 18 inch thick walls made of hand carved lava. ("Historic Resources inventory", 1985) The Shakespeare Club[edit] The Shakespeare Club is the oldest continuously active Women’s Club in the United States. The club was originally organized in 1897 for the purpose of studying the works of William Shakespeare. The Shakespeare Club was originally located on Union Street; however, due to construction of State Highway 50 the members relocated the building during the summer of 1951 to its present site on Bedford Avenue. The Bosquit House[edit] The Bosquit House was built around 1900 and was one of the first homes to use concrete material for the building’s foundation. The home was built by one of Placerville’s more prominent citizens, Archibald Bosquit, who served as the undertaker, tax collector and county sheriff. A.J. Kennedy House[edit] The A. J. Kennedy House was built in the Classic style in 1878. The home was one of the largest homes built in the area and was frequently described as a “mansion”. The home was built and lived in by Andrew Jackson Kennedy, deputy collector for the Internal Revenue Service. ("Historic Resources Inventory. The Ingram-Atwood House[edit] The Queen Anne Cottage, Ingram-Atwood House, was built around 1870. The house was built by George Ingram, one of the developers of Placerville. The design of this home features the entrance which is located diagonally at the corner of the home. The home was purchased by the Atwood family in 1907. The home was updated after World War II when a front gable was added and the exterior front porch enclosed. ("Historical Resources Inventory"). The Goodrich House[edit] The Goodrich House was built sometime around 1918. The square shaped 1 ½ story Classic Cottage includes a one story extension at the back of the home. A feature of the home site is the retaining wall made of stacked Mariposa Slate that dates to the 1850s. The home was built for Don Goodrich, the Superintendent of Schools in Placer County.

Economy[edit] The region east of Placerville, popularly known as Apple Hill and Pleasant Valley, is becoming a center for wine production. The wine region is officially designated as the El Dorado AVA. The largest wineries in the area are Boeger, Lava Cap and Madrona, but most of the 30 plus wineries surrounding Placerville are family owned and smaller in wine grape and wine production. The region is "renown[ed] for making vibrantly flavorful, distinctly delicious wines, grown in the dramatic elevations of the Sierra Nevada."[25] The area is increasingly a center for sophisticated production of Rhone style wines, noted by El Dorado County having a local chapter of the Rhone Rangers winemaker association. Formerly known as Anderson Field, the arena and main grandstand that is now known as Placerville Speedway was originally built by the El Dorado County Fair during the winter months of 1956. Constructing a clay racing surface around the perimeter of the football field, Warren Jewitt and Bruno Romani created what was originally known as "Hangtown Speedway". Auto racing took place here for the first time on June 18, 1965. Since 1965, Placerville Speedway has hosted several racing divisions. The track was cut out of a hillside, giving it higher banking, and covered with a dark red clay racing surface.[26] Placerville is home to the Mountain Democrat newspaper and Marshall Medical Center.

Transportation[edit] Placerville is served by two major highways. California State Route 49 runs north and south, connecting the city with the other major communities in the Sierra Nevada foothills. U.S. Route 50 heads west to Sacramento and east to South Lake Tahoe. This portion of U.S. Route 50 is a part of the Lincoln Highway.[27] Placerville is served by the Placerville Airport.[28] A Good Neighbor Airport, it has a 4,200-foot-long (1,300 m) runway, but is not currently served by any commercial air transport.

Culture[edit] Gold specimen from Placerville Placerville has many old buildings from the Gold Rush days.[29] A walk down Main Street also reveals many historical markers, signifying spots of certain events or persons of importance during this period. Placerville was also on the line of the Pony Express, a short-lived mail carrier service that connected California to the Midwest and East (basically from Sacramento to St. Joseph, Missouri). Historically, Placerville was often referred to by the name "Hangtown," because of the frequent hangings that occurred in the lawless area. Those traveling in the area can still see the old hangman's platform that was used for public hangings.[30] The [Southern Pacific] branch line was purchased from the Union Pacific in 1996 for $14 million by the Joint Powers Authority consisting of Sacramento County, Folsom, and El Dorado County. The line is being restored to run historic excursion trains from Folsom to Placerville on a total of 35 miles (56 km) of track.
