Worth Camp Talks About Early El Dorado

Local attorney and researcher Worth Camp discussed the early appeal of the El Dorado region to 19th century settlers.  The clean water springs and ample streams may have been a key factor in the earliest settlers choosing what is now El Dorado.  Our thanks to Worth for sharing his research with the public.  The presentation sparked a great conversation about the streams and artesian wells in El Dorado and Union County.
