Okay for any Local People of town Placerville, they living in Sand Bar Ville! Very knowledgable docents! Similaries and differences to Sacra History Museum!

I hope Marilyn is there when you stop by. She has a wealth of knowledge about the history of downtown Placerville. The other docents probably do, too. They have some really good informative displays. Make sure to stop by the next time you're in town.

Next time you pass through Placerville, swing by this place. Tiny museum but very interesting, there's some fascinating history in this town. Ask for the little walking tours map as well. Definitely a cute little stop!

This was a really neat trip. The whole town is great to walk through. Check out the old hotel when there. The front desk actually let us check out some of the vacant rooms. Hit up the historical society so you get the great info a lot the town. I'd also do a stop at the gold mine.

Two rooms with some interesting local history. Who knew bottled water was a need in the gold mining times? Bottles were recycled too! There is a historic walking tour map. Ask about the two punishments for breaking the law.

Go to this museum for tourism advice on the weekends. The attendants are very knowledgeable and were excellent storytellers. They got us excited about the area and helped us plan the rest of our day.
