Originally the name comes from a myth from the Muisca peoples during the early 1500's in the Andes (what is now Colombia). The myth tells of the legend of the Golden Man, or El Dorado. This came to be known as an actual place, an empire, where this golden king lived. There were many treacherous expeditions undertaken during the 1500's in order to find this place, true Indiana Jones styles (Sir Walter Raleigh tried to find it too).

Let's start this. El Dorado Hills has grown from a small town into a 50,000+ people in it. Today it does not only has the market deli, but safeway, heaven, the movie theater, and many other places were these rich people go to play.

There's also the over crowed highschool (Oak Ridge aka Coke Ridge) full of drama queens, track stars, white people pretending to be ghetto, cheerleaders, and a bunch of white sterotypes. This high school surprisingly is one of the best in California. The campus has a bunch of small buildings where students go to class. During lunch they hang at the quad, courts, lunchroom, or stoner tree etc...

This town has many hidden secrets to it and you will only figure them out once you have lived there. It was once a great place to have a family but now promotes sheltering children and these kids go wild once they grow up.

El Dorado Hills is great to hate but even better to love.
