Within fifteen minutes of arriving in Auburn, you can be immersed in gold rush history, floating down the American River, enjoying a world class meal, picking grapes in a vineyard, or any one of a hundred different adventures. In Auburn, you can be a world away in no time at all. Founded in 1848, Auburn’s history captivates guests once they arrive. With the gold rush, Auburn exploded into a robust mining and supply camp. Settlers to the region—not all of them law-abiding citizens—used horses and mules to traverse the Nevada, Sacramento, Auburn-Folsom and Foresthill trails. These trails would later become the commercial and residential streets that you will use during your adventure in Auburn.

Present day Auburn is filled with the optimism and spirit of its colorful history. And it’s that same energy and drive that propels the town to continue to offer an unsurpassed experience rich in adventure and history for all ages.

AUBURN and the GEORGETOWN DIVIDE

Copyright © 2014-2018 Martin Marketing Services

The Georgetown Divide is located between the Middle & South Forks of the American River in the foothills of California’s mighty Sierra Nevada Mountains. Perhaps best known for the major role it played during California’s Gold Rush, it took the discovery of gold in the American River at Coloma in 1848 to awaken interest in the foothills above. Miner’s with knowledge of the precious metal’s properties realized that the placer had washed down from the hills above Coloma. It was their exploration for gold that led to the establishment of what became Georgetown & the Divide.

For the past 160 years, life here has been largely influenced by the Divide’s rugged people, the unique places & the historic events. There was a second “Gold Rush” that was actually green in color. This was the discovery of the vast tracts of timber on the Divide above Georgetown. Logging became a major industry on the Divide & remains so to this day. There remains only a small number of towns dating back to the Gold Rush. Most of the old towns are gone now, having faded into history. Across the Georgetown Divide, today’s residents of Georgetown, Garden Valley, Quintette, Greenwood, Pilot Hill, Lotus, Coloma, Kelsey, Mosquito & Volcano enjoy a quiet, rural lifestyle void of the hustle & bustle rampant during the Gold Rush Days.
