Site ofWhen El Dorado County was organized in 1850 as part of the new State of California, Coloma was named the county seat. County offices were housed in simple frame structures until 1856, when a fine court house was built here on the public square. However, by this time placer Gold mining in Coloma was declining and the town population fell rapidly. One year later the county seat was moved to Placerville. The Court House, a large two story structure, was used afterwards as a school and a Masonic lodge. The Alhambra Saloon was built against one side of the building.
