Georgetown is a census-designated place in El Dorado County, California. It is the northeasternmost town in the California Mother Lode. The population was 2,367 at the 2010 census, up from 962 in 2000. The town is registered as California Historical Landmark #484.
Georgetown was founded on August 7, 1849 by a sailor named George Phipps, who first pitched his tent near the head of what has since been called Empire Canyon. Georgetown was nicknamed Growlersburg because of the heavy nuggets that “growled” in the miner’s pans.
The first log house in Georgetown was erected on about September 20, 1849 and became the first store. By January 1, 1850, the number of buildings had increased to a dozen. Most of these buildings operated as stores. In the summer of 1850 a stage line had been created from Georgetown to Coloma and on to Sacramento. The “Georgetown Cut-Off Road” provided a way for those emigrating on the Carson Emigrant Trail to get to Georgetown and was essentially a highway to other mining areas, including river bars on the Middle Fork of the American River: Ford’s Bar, Volcano Bar, Big Bar, Sandy Bar, Junction Bar, Gray Eagle, and others. Georgetown also served as a distributing point for supplies to those working on the bars and flats in the surrounding area.
Georgetown was a hub to not just mining bars, but mining hills as well. Mamaluke Hill, Bottle Hill, and Volcanoville were rich mining areas located nearby. Mamaluke Hill produced $5,000,000 in gold and was probably the richest hill in California for its size. […]
