California Haunts checks out Cary House

There are some places that people like so much that they just can’t seem to leave. The Cary House Hotel on Main Street seems to be one of those places.

Built in 1847 by William Cary, the hotel, located at 300 Main St., served not only those passing through Placerville but miners as well.

For those who enjoy great ambiance and elegance, the Cary House is for you. Just one step through its door and you are taken back in time. The woodwork and the stained glass in the lobby are eye-catching.
