Welcome to Shingle Springs! This community is tucked away in El Dorado County and is located approximately 40 miles from Sacramento in the Gold Country foothills. The towns of Columa and Placerville are less than 15 miles away.
Like many of the other towns in California’s Mother Lode, Shingle Springs grew on the site of a mining camp set up by gold miners during the California Gold Rush, in this case a group of “49ers” who had followed the Carson-Emigrant Trail through Pleasant Valley, Nevada. It took its name from a horse-drawn shingle machine capable of producing 16,000 shingles a day that was located near the springs at the western edge of the camp.
Today, Shingle Springs is home to plenty of recreational and outdoor activities, historical sites, and excellent schools. Visitors and residents alike enjoy the community’s small-town feel and charming shops and restaurants.
