General Overview of Paloma, California

Paloma, California is located in Calaveras, California and is considered to be an unincorporated community. The whole town is extremely small, and it serves as a tourist attraction. This is evident in it being named California Historical Landmark #295.


It’s name is Spanish for “dove,” and it has previously gone by the names of Fosteria and Frenchman’s Ranch. Originally, it was given its name due to the Paloma Mine that was nearby, being that the area was one of the hotbeds of mining in California during the middle of the 19th century.


Like much of the mining that took place in the 19th century, in Paloma, it was quartz mining, specifically for gold, that defined it as part of the California Gold Rush. The Paloma Mine was eventually renamed the Gwin in 1867 when it was purchased by Senator William McKendree Gwin, a California U.S. Senator. The Paloma Mine yielded such large amounts of quartz that millions upon millions of dollars in profit were made in obtaining gold from them.


By the end of the 19th century in the 1890s, the land that is Paloma today was subdivided from south of the Paloma Mine. Like all towns, it had to have its own post office. The name “Paloma” was taken already by a post office in another part of California, which is what led to it being called Fosteria.


Today, Paloma is an extremely small town, and, as a direct result, there is not much census data available on it. It is a highly rural area that mainly attracts tourists, though some residents still live there. The residents who live there will often travel to San Andreas or Angels Camp in Calaveras County for groceries, to dine at a restaurant, and for work. In fact, Angels Camp is the only incorporated city in Calaveras County, as the whole area is very rural and only full of small towns.


There is not much crime that does occur in Paloma, though when it does, law enforcement officials are not close by to provide assistance. There is always the danger that robberies and other property crimes, as well as violent crimes, can occur. Being that it is quite isolated, it’s important that Paloma is provided the necessary security protection services that First Security is capable of.


Much of the tourists that visit Paloma would be in need of some security, especially since it attracts elderly tourists.


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


Paloma Residential, Retail, and Personal Security Services

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


  • Residential Security: As already mentioned, there is not much in terms of residents who live in Paloma. The ones that are there live in small homes, many of which are mobile homes or extremely old homes. They live quiet lives and commute often to other parts of Calaveras County, since Paloma does not offer much in the way of groceries or things to do. They could benefit from having alarm systems set up that can alert authorities as quickly as possible if they are in danger of a home invasion.
  • Points of Interest Security: There is not much to do in Paloma, though the Paloma Mines are a tourist attraction. Security services could be provided there to make sure that tourists and employees have an enjoyable experience. However, it is a small operation and many tourists venture around there on their own. One of the only places for residents in Paloma to visit is the Paloma Community Open Bible Church, which is quite small, though it can fit inside of it a few dozen people.
  • Cannabis protection
