The city of Plymouth started as a mining camp around 1852. Quartz mining was the primary mineral mined when settled by Green Aden and other hard rock miners. The town was established in 1871 and incorporated by 1917. Plymouth is nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range and is located on historic Highway 49, south of Placerville. The central location to the wineries in Shenandoah Valley, places this city at the heart of the Gold Country (information cited from www.ci.plymouth.ca.us).
