The town of Rescue was established in 1895. The story goes that Andrew Hare was "rescued" from poverty by his mining, and named the town Rescue. The town was once a stop on the Pony Express trail between Placerville and Folsom
Rescue consists of primarily farmland, vineyards are a part of the Sierra Foothills AVA and ranches with an expanding amount of residential neighborhoods and businesses. Neighborhoods vary from tightly knit semi-suburban areas to more rural, spread out neighborhoods. Downtown Rescue is quite small, with only a Post Office, Fire Station, two churches, and a Community Center to distinguish it from the more rural areas.
