Dogtown, El Dorado County, California
A reference to the town can be found in the Mountain Democrat newspaper, in which Jake Schneider of Pleasant Valley moved to Dogtown in order to open a butcher shop.
The town was eventually purchased in whole by the California Door Company and renamed "Caldor."
