GEORGETOWN GAZETTE, El Dorado County, California, Sept. 19, 1901
* Rare gold mining town publication
A very rare title from this now-historical site, the most northeastern town in California's Mother Lode mining territory\ near the Nevada border.
Less than 1000 people reside there today but in its heyday of the 1850's & 1860's the population exceeded 3000. Gold mining continued here longer than most Gold Rush towns, extending into the 20th century.
In addition to its scarcity, page 2 has coverage of the death of President William McKinley.
Four pages, very nice condition.
