About Placerville

Placerville has the most unique and diverse shopping district in the area, woven amongst businesses that date back over 100 years such as Placerville Hardware (the oldest hardware store west of the Mississippi), Placerville News, Combellack's, Randolph Jewelers and the Cary House.

See a great historical tour of some of Placerville's Main Street history here, courtesy of our local 4H Club.

Here are three items provided to us by the local El Dorado County Historical Society:

Placerville also has a number of incredible antique stores and art galleries. In addition, you will find an delightful selection of other shops—everything from Army Surplus to wedding Dresses, as well as Olive Oil, and Cheese. And, if you are a crafter, we have it all from art supplies to knitting and everything in between.

Placerville has a great selection of unique, independent restaurants up and down Main street and there truly is something for everyone: everything from the best Hamburger in El Dorado County at Old Town Grill to an elegant sit-down dinner at The Levee.

Did you know that Thomas Kinkade was from Placerville and that the original Kinkade Gallery was on Main Street?

And on top of all of this our town is very dog friendly!
