The Rescue Historical Society, Inc. is a nonprofit organization formed for the purpose of gathering, sharing, and archiving information about history and families of the Rescue area in El Dorado County.
The History of Our Society
The Rescue Historical Society came into being when the Rose Springs Literary Society was formed and the hall was constructed. We consider the picture of the early pioneers taken next to the hall as the first documentation of our history.
At about the same time as the photo was taken, Pearle (Wise) Wing began writing about the Rescue area. She was prolific in her documentation of our history.
