Rescue, California

The town of Rescue, California was officially recognized June 12, 1895 with the establishment of the post office headed by the first postmaster, Dr. Merritt Aquila Hunter. Prior to this time, Rescue had been an area of intense gold mining activity with business supporting the mining interests. Buildings of the past included the Kelly Creek Store, the Kelly Creek Slaughter house, cabins and numerous mining shacks. Rescue was located on the Old Coloma Road between Coloma and Sacramento, a major thoroughfare during gold rush times. A short distance to the North of town was a brick factory that was destroyed by fire before establishment of the Post Office. Ruins of the brick factory are visible today.

Today, Rescue is located at the juncture of Green Valley and Deer Valley Roads, 5 miles north of Shingle Springs on the West slope of the Sierra Nevada. We are situated 1381 feet above sea level and host a population of 4,461.
