“People come out and see that there was a place here, that there was a Clarksville… that people lived in these old buildings and drove these old cars.”

Francis Carpenter, Rescue
“This place still has the feel of old Clarksville, and there aren’t many left like this. They’ve all turned into something else. I was here all the time when I was a kid. My dad would stop at the store to let the Model T cool off before we went on up to Rescue. I remember the store had no ice, so the drinks were warm and there was no ice cream.”
Janet Hill, Rocklin
“Samuel Kyburz was my third great grandfather. I’ve been researching my genealogy and I discovered that my grandfather’s mother was born and buried here. I just went over to the cemetery on the hill above the movie theater and saw her grave. I’ve met relatives I never knew I had.”
Angie Lester, Clarksville
“I get to share this wonderful place I live with everyone else for one day only. Then they all go home, and I get my house back.”
John Thomson, El Dorado Hills “Well, for one thing, it’s free. It’s for the community. It’s here so people realize that there really is history in El Dorado Hills, peeping out of the hills.”
