Settled by Missourians in 1849, Fiddletown was a trading center for American, Loafer, and French Flats, Lone Hill, and other rich mining camps. Called Fiddletown because residents were always fiddling, the settlement became Oleta in 1878 but the original name was later restored. Bret Harte added to the community's fame in An Episode of Fiddletown.
