General Overview of Coloma, California

Coloma, California is a census-designated place, known as a CDP, that’s located in El Dorado County, California. Sacramento is the closest major city to it, being that it’s only 36 miles southwest.


The population of Coloma is extremely small, since it is only 529. They live on a total land area of 3.355 square miles, giving it a population density of 160 people per square mile. This is extremely low, indicative of Coloma being a small, tiny town that’s rural.


Coloma, despite its diminutive size, has an extremely rich history behind it. Its importance can’t be stated enough, as it’s the place where James W. Marshall discovered gold in 1848. He found it in Sutter’s Mill, which was a small sawmill in Coloma in the Sierra Nevada. This event led to the entire California Gold Rush, which eventually led to California becoming what it is today.


While it has a notable history, Coloma is currently not very populated or a robust town. Instead, many consider it to be a ghost town. This is evident in the dilapidation of many of its civic buildings, including its jail and other buildings that were once prominent in the 19th century.


The name of Coloma originates from the Native American tribe the Nisenan who used to live there, as it means “beautiful.”


Currently, Coloma mainly serves as a popular tourist attraction, having been named a National Historic Landmark District since July 4th, 1961. Many of the old buildings from the California Gold Rush era have been converted into museums, and its Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park is the main attraction within it.


The median age in Coloma is quite old, as it’s 49 years. It’s much higher than the State of California’s median age of 33.3 years and the national median age of 37.2 years. 57.1% of its residents are 45 years and older.


In addition, 93.6% of its residents live in households.


Even though it’s a ghost town, its residents have a very high median household income, with it being around $80,720. The State of California’s median household income is $58,328, and the national average is $53,046 to put things into perspective.


It is a town in which its residents mainly rely on tourism and agriculture. Based on the high median household income of it, they are doing quite well in those fields.


Coloma has a crime rate index of 46, meaning that it’s safer than 46% of all cities in the United States.


Overall, property crime occurs in Coloma at a rate that is 13% higher than in El Dorado County, yet is still 44% below the average property crime rates in the United States. With personal crimes, it fares much better, having a rate that is 4% that of El Dorado County and 56% below the personal crime rate in the United States.


First Security understands the security needs of Coloma and El Dorado County  in general and will be able to provide the very best in security services.


Coloma  Residential, Retail, and Personal Security Services

First Security can help protect those in Coloma by providing the following specific security services:


  • Residential Security: The residents in Coloma live a quiet life. Many of them work in the tourist industry, so they can be quite receptive and friendly to tourists who are visiting this historical town. Still though, as they do attract many tourists during certain times of the year, they need to make sure that their homes are secure, especially since they have a high median household income. Many of the residents take vacations to other parts of California, including the Sierra Nevada Foothills or to Sacramento to experience more livelier places. Since there is not much in the way of law enforcement in Coloma, First Security Services would be able to provide expert security services, including patrols and alarm systems.
  • Points of Interest Security: As already mentioned, Coloma is a historical town that is focused mainly on tourism these days. Sutter’s Mill and the Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park are both two of the main attractions of those who visit this town. The South Fork American River is also nearby and is considered to be one of the main white water rafting trips in not only California, but in the entire country.
  • Cannabis protection

Residents in Coloma should consider hiring First Security patrol services to make sure that their community and their homes always remain safe.
