Henry Angell, ( yes with two l’s ) was originally a native of Rhode Island and setup a tent store on the banks of the creek. The placers around his camp were productive but gave out after a few years, and the population dwindled until gold-bearing quartz veins were discovered in town which brought people back to the area. Those mines operated for the next few decades, producing over 20 million dollars worth of gold! It was reported, when the last mill finally ceased operations, the townspeople could not sleep as the silence was so loud.
Angels Camp is a great little community with a golf course, movie theatre, shops, restaurants and has a population of over 3800!
