Georgetown Real Estate
A former mining and logging town, Georgetown is located in El Dorado County, between Placerville and Auburn. It’s accessed primarily by Highway 193 and is just over an hour from Sacramento.
In its heyday, the area was known as Growlerburg because of the nuggets that “growled” in the miners’ pans. Its colorful historic roots helped it become a designated California Historical Landmark. Today the rural community is home to older houses and large lots of land and parcels available to build on. A quaint main street plays host to several business, restaurants, and shops while many residents and guests take advantage of the rich recreational offerings.
Georgetown School is located in the community and accommodates kindergarten through sixth grade students. Golden Sierra Junior Senior High School is also nearby. Both schools are part of the Black Oak Mine Unified School District.
