The Hangtown Marshals and the Ladies of Hangtown are a group of men and women who have been volunteering in the City of Placerville for over 30 years. This historical reenactment group was begun by Buck Kohlstedt and J Stirling in 1988 to perpetuate the traditions of the old west and promote gun safety. The Marshals and Ladies act as unofficial ambassadors of the city, performing on Main Street during events, taking pictures with tourists and locals, coordinating the Christmas Parade, participating in the Christmas tree lighting, and assisting with the free stagecoach rides during the spring and summer. The Marshals have performed at many county-wide venues, including wineries, apple farms, Gold Country Senior Retirement Community, the Wagon Train, and Georgetown Founder's Day.
