“Why Are we Rating This”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

Okay, its a bell tower in town. If this is all this town has going for it, I feel sorry for the locals. The trouble is, there isn't much to do in this place, and the locals get kind of bored, so they have to have a mascot that gives them something to talk about when they leave town and talk to other people who live in real places. The downtown area is known for a lot of tourist gouging, so get ready for it and keep a tight fist on those dollars.

“Center of Placerville”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

The bell tower is the visual anchor of downtown Placerville. All commerce radiates from this centerpoint. Restaurants, hardware stores, antique stores and friendly businesses

“In The Heart of Downtown Placerville”
Reviewed March 21, 2012

Historic old belltower is on Main Street about center of Plascerville. This historic old town is so worth getting off Hwy 50 to visit. Quaint old shops, cafes and the wests only continuous running hardware store, right on Main. If they don't have it you won't find it. A great place to browse for quaint gifts.
