This site is a collection of information regarding the efforts to maintain downtown Placerville as a unique historical destination.

Why do we need the Placerville Historic Preservation League?

Because views on historic preservation are not all the same:

“I just want to say that, before we ever got here, before I was born, this county underwent a lot of changes. One of them was Highway 50. When Highway 50 was put in, a lot of things were destroyed. We just have to continue to push forward, push past people who want us to live in the past.… But we need to just keep pushing forward and keep at it and realize that there’s going to be old stuff buried in the ground everywhere.”
