The Divide: Not just a place; its a Place to LIVE!
Georgetown Divide: Or just (aka) The Divide” is the area between the Middle Fork and the South Fork of the American River.
Georgetown is just a little over 20 miles from the saw mill where Gold was discovered… The Story goes that the actual community pf Georgetown was founded the first part of August, 1849, just 18 months after John Marshal’s crew first found gold (the official date was January 24, 1848). The first post office was opened just two years later in 1851.
There was both Placer and Hard Rock Mining operations all over the divide for several years and the mines stayed open till after the first world war and into the depression years.
Here's the gist of living here, on 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 & Volcanoville enjoy a quiet, rural lifestyle void of the hustle & bustle rampant during the Gold Rush Days.
These days, the real gold here is Real Estate on the Divide! Fishing, Hiking, Whitewater Rafting, Camping, Hunting, Horseback Riding and Equestrian Camping, Wildlifing… And with hundreds and hundreds of miles off-road trails for motorcycles, ATV’s & 4×4’s are some of the outdoor activities that bring folks here to visit, and the people and natural beauty have caused many to come back for good
The Divide (AKA Georgetown Divide) is home to some of the most private, remote, out of the way recreation properties for sale that are within an easy drive from highway 50 and Interstate 80.
