Georgetown $ to $$$

John Henline - 

 
GEORGETOWN

Located Above Garden Valley off Marshall Rd. and Hwy 193 in the California Gold Country, North Central California.

             

A very horse friendly Horse Community, Georgetown is the principal community on the Georgetown Divide, sits on the western crest of the ridge about 15 miles north of Placerville along Highway 193. It is located at the northern end of the northeast segment of the Mother Lode belt that extends through Garden Valley and Georgetown to the Middle Fork of the American River.

          

Gold deposits were found almost continuously from Pilot Creek to beyond Greenwood. Hence, the district was rich not only in placer gold, but it was also highly suitable for quartz mining. When different people visited Georgetown, they often thought it the "prettiest town in the mountains." Most other mining towns, such as Coloma and Placerville, are located in valleys or ravines. Georgetown, somewhat like Garden Valley however, is located on the summit of a ridge at about 2600 feet in elevation. (Garden Valley is about 1900, Placerville is about 1700 feet and Coloma is about 900 feet in elevation).
