N ITS HEYDAY, NEVADA CITY was the largest and most prosperous mining town in the State of California – a title it later had to relinquish to neighboring Grass Valley. The compact downtown area with its gas lights and flower baskets provides visitors with plenty to see and do. Discover the historic theatre and hotels, visit a winery, old foundry, museums, unique shops and interesting restaurants. Also explore the nearby neighborhoods on foot or by car. For example, take Broad Street from downtown across the freeway and go straight or turn left to view lovely historic homes. Although it is hard to believe when viewing Nevada City today, the town was in danger of becoming a ghost town. When the mines closed in the mid-1950s, the area suffered economically. By 1965, a third of the buildings on Broad Street were vacant. When several older buildings were lost due to construction of the Golden Center Freeway, the word “preservation” began to enter conversations. The City Council passed an Historic Ordinance in 1968, followed in 1972 by a federal grant for improvements. Then in 1986, Nevada City officially became a Registered Historic District. Founded as a mining camp in 1849, Nevada City quickly grew with each new discovery of gold. Men commonly pulled a pound of gold a day from Deer Creek, and

ENTERPIECE OF GRASS VALLEY is a vibrant downtown section that has been serving the community since shortly after gold miners arrived in 1849. This commercial district has everything from an historic hotel to antique shops, diverse restaurants, wine tasting rooms, great shopping and a center for the arts. Downtown buildings constructed in the late 1880s co-exist with architecture of later eras like art deco. In the 1980s, Grass Valley was recognized as a self-initiated Main Street City by the State of California Main Street Program. Store fronts were evaluated by an architect who visited the area and suggested ways to preserve the historic character. In the 1990s, Main Street received a facelift complete with trees, flower boxes and a Victorian clock strategically placed at the corner of Mill and Main Streets. Looking back, the first white men to set foot in the area were from Oregon, and came in 1848 after hearing that gold had been discovered. Soon, the rush for gold was on, and a group of 20 formed the

nucleus of a town. There were a lot of firsts in 1850 – the first store, hotel Downtown Mill Street and family. That year an important discovery took place, or so the story goes, when a miner looking for his missing cow knocked loose a rock which glittered. He crushed it and found gold in the quartz. Prior to that time, miners were involved in placer mining or mining for free gold in creeks and among gravel. Grass Valley grew in a matter of months from about 20 cabins to 150 buildings. Saloons became plentiful and gambling was very popular. In 1855, the population rose to 3,500, and a devastating fire destroyed 300 buildings including virtually all of the business district. One bright light was provided by Alonzo Delano, the Wells Fargo agent. Seen pulling a shanty down the street, he backed it up to the company’s brick vault still standing among the ruins and opened for business amid the warm ashes.

ANDREW WRIGHT

Early Gold Seekers Founded Grass Valley

Another setback occurred when early mining success was followed by failure as easily accessible gold became difficult to find. However, in the 1860s techniques were improved, and a very profitable hardrock or underground mining industry was established. Closing of the mines by the war production board in the 1940s, along with the government’s fixed price of gold at $35 an ounce, contributed to the end of mining in Grass Valley, as did labor disputes. It is said, however, that millions of dollars worth of gold remain, and there just may come a day when the now silent mines reopen. In fact, the Idaho-Maryland Mining Corporation is working toward reopening the Idaho-Maryland, one of the area’s most successful mines.

IONEERS HEADING FOR A better life in the west were guided through the daunting Sierra Nevada by a friendly Indian chief in 1844 – four years before the discovery of gold. This encounter not only led to a route which allowed an estimated 10,000 emigrants to cross into California between 1844 and 1854, but also is responsible for naming a town which still thrives today. It is reported that when the Stevens Party from Missouri first met the chief, they either mistook his attempt at telling them all was “Okay, Okay” or mistook the name he called himself – regardless, the word Truckee came into being, and to honor the chief, they gave a river in the area the name Truckee. Although a wagon route was well established, it wasn’t until 1863 that the first white man settled in the area. His name was

Joseph Gray’s Cabin

Joseph Gray, and he built a log stagecoach station near the emigrant road. For a brief time, the settlement was called Gray’s Station. In 1865, S. S. Coburn built a public house for accommodating teamsters and travelers. It also served the stage line, and for a time, the settlement of Gray’s Station became Coburn Station. The area saw growth in the late 1860s when the Central Pacific Railroad was laying track in the Sierra Nevada. During this period, there were 25 sawmills, five saloons, a boarding house and several stores. At one time, 10,000 Chinese worked under dangerous conditions to conquer the Sierra Nevada for the railroad, and the area had a large Chinatown. However, in the late 1880s, Truckee’s Chinese residents were forced to leave through economic pressures. The year 1868 saw the arrival of the first train and a devastating fire that all but destroyed Coburn Station. A new town was built a little further east and named Truckee after the nearby river. The rowdy new town flourished. There was fighting, gambling and plenty of saloons, as well as a red-light district on Jibboom Street that was in existence until 1949. There were also attempts to bring about law and order through a Vigilance Committee formed in 1871. Yet, a brewery in the Truckee basin thrived. The Boca Brewing Company building was completed in 1876 and covered an acre. At one time, about 30,000 barrels a year were produced. Natural spring water was used and Boca Beer enjoyed a national

reputation. The brewery was destroyed by fire in 1893. Along with lumber, ice harvesting became an important part of the local economy. It was cold, and the ponds used for logs made great ice ponds. By 1880, there were seven companies supplying ice via the railroad to California, as well as points east. The end came in the 1920s when technology developed mechanical refrigeration. During the 1890s, the cold winters also produced another industry – tourism. Charles F. McGlashan, one of Truckee’s leading citizens, built a giant icicle clearly visible from passing trains. The next year an ice palace was built with an ice rink and toboggan run. Train excursions were arranged and tourists poured into town. The first winter carnival was held in 1909. What is believed to be the first ski lift was built in Truckee in 1913. Horse drawn sleighs brought people to Donner Lake for ice skating. In the 1940s, cars replaced the railroad and improved roads led to further development. Over 250,000 spectators were drawn to the area when Squaw Valley hosted the 1960 Winter Olympics. And to this day, Truckee remains a winter sports hub. WWW.NEVADACOUNTYGOLD.COM

State Parks Empire Mine State Historic Park

JOSH MILLER

OCATED JUST OUTSIDE Grass Valley, the Empire Mine was the oldest, richest hardrock gold mine in California. Now a state historic park, it is one of the area’s most popular attractions. During the 100 or so years the mine operated, $100 million in gold (1914 prices) was taken out or about 5,800,000 ounces, and 367 miles of tunnels and an incline of 11,000 feet had been reached. Forced to shut down during World War II by the war production board, the mine never really got going after it reopened, and it closed for good in 1956. It is said there is still gold beneath the ground, and should the price warrant, production could start again. Visitors to the park will find restored buildings, exhibits, an illuminated mine shaft and Bourn Cottage with its lovely gardens.

STARK LANDSCAPE greets visitors who venture to Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park. It was created between the 1850s and 1880s by hydraulic gold mining. Wa t e r w a s brought to the site and then aimed at hillsides through giant nozzles. However, in 1884, hydraulic mining was essentially outlawed because of damage done to downstream rivers and waterways. The park now contains a museum, the deserted mining town of North Bloomfield, and picnic facilities and hiking trails which are

The hotel was a gathering place for those involved in mining, and it was here young Herbert Hoover found himself after receiving his engineering degree at Stanford University. Hoover had come looking for work with a mining company and took a room at the National. When his $40 stake ran out, the Rectors extended him credit. College men were not readily accepted and Hoover was forced to take a job pushing an ore car. His $2-a-day job did not allow him to remain at the National, though he did pay the Rectors what he owed them.

contemporary of Mark Twain and Bret Harte, J OHN R OLLIN R IDGE was considered one of California’s most talented and versatile writers. In 1864, he settled in Grass Valley and became part owner of the Nevada National newspaper. Ridge was a crusading newspaper editor and fiercely anti-Lincoln during the Civil War. There were strong feelings between Ridge and the editor of the Grass Valley Union, who was for the re-election of Lincoln. Their dislike for each other apparently led to the exchange of bribery charges, and Ridge challenged him to a duel. As the story goes, the challenge was ignored, but the revival editor did receive a caning from Ridge and his cronies.

Ghostly Adventures

D D By Mark Lyon

PHOTOS BY ANDREW WRIGHT

O YOU BELIEVE IN GHOSTS? Would you like to meet one face to faceless? If so, Grass Valley and Nevada City both offer historic hotels in which such an encounter is a distinct possibility. Built in 1855, Grass Valley’s Holbrooke Hotel, which has played host to four U.S. presidents, Mark Twain, Bret Harte and prizefighter “Gentleman Jim” Corbett, is heavily haunted. In the Holbrooke bar, said to be one of the oldest continuously operating saloons west of the Mississippi, inexplicable smoke-like clouds have been observed, and the voices of a crowd can sometimes be heard emanating from the saloon late at night when it is locked and seemingly empty. A small boy visiting last summer complained when approaching the library room adjoining the bar, “Why are those people talking so loudly?” No one was in the room at the time – at least no one anyone else could see. In the Arletta Douglas Room, which once served as the hotel’s restaurant, a ghostly couple would often be seen, but when a member of the wait staff would return to take their order, the couple would have vanished. Meanwhile in the guest rooms, beds have been known to shake violently, a phantom maid has been observed making the beds while guests are still in them, or to carefully hang up clothing which had been left out and otherwise tidying up the rooms in the middle of the night! And numerous stories are told of spooky phenomena occurring in the lady’s room downstairs, and the mysterious cowboy ghost often seen standing near its entrance. Just up the hill in Nevada City, the venerable National Hotel, established in 1865 and once home to President Herbert Hoover, also has more than its fair share of ghosts. A lady in Victorian attire has been seen standing near the piano in the National’s bar and is know to float across the hotel’s dining room. And ghostly footsteps have often been heard in the main hallway leading from the reception desk. But perhaps that is only to be expected as the specter of an elderly gentleman in Victorian dress has been seen sitting in one of the chairs in the hotel lobby, and a little boy ghost has been observed playfully bouncing a ball in the hallway. A white, “washed out” appearing woman in a long dress, her hair worn up in an old-fashioned style and smelling of cheap perfume favored by Victorian “ladies of the night,” has been seen floating across the third floor hallway. For the adventurous ghost hunter, spending the night in one or both of these unique hotels is a definite must!

Superstitions, Mules and Millions Empire Mine Head Frame, 1890

T

HEIRS WAS A DANGEROUS occupation, so it is not surprising local hardrock miners had their superstitions. One was the ghost-like Tommy Knocker thought to have a long nose and tall black hat. It was said that when he was heard knocking in the mine something was going to happen so you best be careful. It was also believed a woman in a mine was bad luck, as was whistling. Cornwall, England supplied most of the labor for area mines including the mighty Empire, now a State Historic Park. Almost 95% of its miners gained their experience in the tin and cooper mines of Cornwall. They not only brought their expertise, but inventions like the Cornish Pump used to remove water from underground tunnels. The Empire Mine traces its history back to 1850 when George Roberts discovered flecks of gold in on outcropping of quartz located in what is now the mine’s parking lot. His discovery brought hundreds to the area to stake claims, but the skills needed to build deep tunnels was lacking. Roberts, like many others, became discouraged and sold his claim to a group that consolidated a number of small claims under the name Empire Mine. In the next 100 years or so, the Empire would go on to become the oldest, largest and richest gold mine in California. An estimated 5,800,000 ounces of gold were extracted from 367 miles of underground passages that went to a depth of 11,000 feet. At one time 80 stamp mills worked 24 hours a day to pulverize the ore so gold could be extracted. They could easily be heard in Grass Valley and even at times in Nevada City. Residents became so accustomed to the noise they only noticed if it stopped. In 1871, capitalist William Bourn gained controlling interest of

the Empire, and it prospered, only to decline after his death. His son William, Jr. took over in 1877 when he turned 21 and by 1884 profits once again rolled in. Success in great part was due to George Starr, a relative who began working at the mine at 16. Although he had little formal education, he become one of the great mining engineers of his day. The Empire Mine was one of the most progressive mines in the United States. Yet, mules were used to haul ore and waste to the main shaft for transport to the surface. At one time, 44 lived in barns underground. One named Fanny was particularly fond of chewing tobacco. Bourn, Jr. sold the mine in 1929 to the Newmont Mining Corporation. It continued to prosper until World War II, when it was closed down by the War Production Board. The Empire reopened in 1945, but the fixed price of gold, high cost of extracting it and labor problems led to permanent closure in 1956.

RUCKEE RETAINS MUCH of its old west flavor and historic charm. To enjoy some of the town’s landmarks on foot, start your walk at the corner of Bridge Street and walk historic Commercial Row to the Kruger-White House, retrace your steps back to Spring Street and turn left, continue to the corner of High Street and the Rocking Stone, return to Jibboom Street and turn left. Take Jibboom to Bridge turn right and stop at Church Street. THE DEPOT: Commercial Row. Built in 1900, renovated in 1989. Railroad history began in 1868 with arrival of first train. Down the street is the loading dock and freight station used by the Southern Pacific Railroad. THE CAPITOL: 10072 Donner Pass Rd. Commercial Row’s oldest building built in 1870. Originally a saloon and hall. Used by an opera company, then for the county court. Silent movies were shown in theatre upstairs, where wellknown entertainers also performed. THE 601: 10100 Donner Pass Road. Truckee’s Vigilance Committee was established in 1871 because of crime and the number of “undesirables” in town. See plaque. KRUGER-WHITE HOUSE: 10291 Donner Pass Road past Spring Street. One of Truckee’s oldest buildings, built in 1874 by W. H. Kruger, a lumber company owner. In 1904 purchased by C. B.

Although it no longer rocks, having been shored up to protect it from vandalism and accidents, this 17 ton stone is one of 25 known rocking stones in the world. Used as far back as 15,000 years ago by Native Americans for ceremonies, drying food and storage.

HERITAGE AWARD

Guide to Historic Homes

G

REAT EXAMPLES OF QUEEN ANNE and Folk Victorians, miners’ cottages, and Gothic and Greek Revival homes are scattered throughout Grass Valley neighborhoods. But how do you find them? That task has been made easier with the publication of “Heritage Homes of Grass Valley,” a project of the GV Historical Commission. Each of the 45 homes profiled have received the Heritage Award presented yearly by the commission. The book provides a map, so you can easily take walking tours of Grass Valley’s neighborhoods, such as Nob Hill where you will find 10 homes. As you wander around admiring these special homes, take time to note features like a finely carved porch cornice, stained glass windows and the old iron fences. And, you might just be transported back in time to the days when the mighty gold mines flourished.

Old Town Is A Great Place to Stroll ATEWAY TO THE SIERRA,” Truckee is a town which is not only rich in history, but has been undergoing changes to meet the needs of a growing community. Despite its growth, the town retains its ties with the past, particularly in Old Town centered around Commercial Row and the railroad. Here one finds delightful shops, galleries, a variety of restaurants and pubs, an historic hotel and landmarks that date from the 1860s. Just to the west is another historic area called Brickelltown where interesting older houses and buildings have been turned into quaint retail stores. The town of Truckee has completed an update of its historic preservation policies and procedures, has been placed on the State Historic Registry, and now part of its Old Town has been placed on the National Register of Historic Districts. One of the area’s greatest draws is the abundance of activities available for the outdoor enthusiast. In the summer, you can enjoy fishing, camping, rock climbing, and water sports such as water-skiing, sailing and windsurfing. There is also tennis, golf, horseback riding and mountain biking. Hikers have a number of trails from which to choose, including a portion of the Pacific Crest Trail which takes them to mountain meadows filled with wild flowers and breathtaking scenery. Winter brings snow and lots of it. Near Truckee are a number of first class ski resorts including famed Squaw Valley,

site of the 1960 Winter Olympic Games. Many facilities also include sledding, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and snowboarding. Using Truckee as a base, it is a short trip Old Town to Reno, Nevada where casinos provide gaming and a wide variety of entertainment. And, your stay should include a day trip around Lake Tahoe for the spectacular scenery. Even closer is Donner Lake and the rugged peaks of the Sierra Nevada. The lake is not only rich in history and site of a state historic park, but it provides a number of recreational activities based at West End Beach. The High Sierra has been designated one of California’s 12 uniquely varied regions with elevations ranging from 5,900 to 9,000 feet. Changes in recent years have not taken away from Truckee’s small town atmosphere. With the Truckee river flowing by and snow capped mountains in view, it provides visitors with its own brand of old west hospitality.

ODAY DONNER LAKE IS a beautiful spot. It is enjoyed from sunrise to sunset by hikers, fishermen, water-skiers and kayakers, as well as passersby who stop along I-80 to look down on this scenic spot. But, the lake has a darker side, for as its name implies, it played a role in a tragic story that took place in the cruel winter of 1846-47. Before gold was discovered in California, there were pioneers who set out across the plains to make new lives for themselves in the west. Among them was a group from Illinois that would go down in history as the Donner Party. Organized by brothers George and Jacob Donner, they set off from Springfield in 1846 and became part of a larger wagon train. Had they chosen to remain with the group instead of taking a “short-cut,” this would be a very different story, for their choice was a grave mistake. What was expected to take one week took 30 days. When they reached what is now Reno, Nevada, the Donner Party was able to get badly needed provisions. But, their three to four day rest proved to be a fatal decision. Storms were already brewing in the Sierra Nevada ahead. In fact, one had set in on October 28 as they reached Prosser Creek just east of Truckee. Despite the snow, they pressed on, but could not scale the summit and returned to Donner Lake where they set up camp in a ferocious storm. The party built crude cabins with the main encampment near the lake. The Donner brothers chose to camp six to seven miles to the east. Provisions in the main camp were soon gone, and as they faced starvation, a party

was dispatched on December 16 to attempt passage over the Sierra. Two returned, 15 continued including several women, eight died along the way, but two men and five women stumbled upon an Indian camp. One man was then guided to Johnson’s Ranch on the Bear River, a settlement located on the western slope. The other six were also brought to the ranch. It had been a 32day journey. Help was summoned from Fort Sutter in Sacramento. Within a week provisions arrived, and in another 10 to 12 days, the first relief party reached Donner Lake where they discovered many had died from starvation including numerous children. In February 1847, a second group attempted the difficult trip over the summit. They encountered a second relief party. A third relief party found George Donner and his family. Donner was dying; his wife would not leave and stayed to die with him. Their children were rescued. The fourth and final relief party arrived at the main encampment site on April 7 and rescued the very last survivor. When all was said and done, 42 members of the Donner Party perished, 47 survived. Sadly, some of the survivors were reduced to cannibalism in an attempt to hold on until help came. By the way, the rest of the original wagon train followed the traditional route and arrived safely at the intended destination in California.

Community Looks To The Future

4.70 acres have been donated, and the foundation is now meeting with a developer and working with the county to rezone the site. Fundraising efforts are under way to help build the center, and it is hoped that a new library for Penn Valley can be built on the site which is located in the heart of the community. Just six miles from Grass Valley, Penn Valley has been able to meld business, family, agriculture and a healthy lifestyle. Visitors to the area can enjoy fall colors, country roads, the 88 acre Western Gateway Park, and historic Bridgeport and Englebright Lake which are both within an easy drive. WAYDE CARROLL

ENN VALLEY remains a community of peaceful natural beauty with a tranquil lifestyle. The area maintains a “small town” atmosphere which has attracted both retirees and families. Residents may see horses on riding trails, llamas peering over fences, deer and wild turkeys. There are also over 200 businesses, as well as schools, churches and amenities that make life complete. Today, 12,000 plus call the area home. The community has professional office space and business condominiums for light manufacturing. A variety of home styles are available in the country and in neighborhoods. Serving as a hub for community non-profits and service organizations is the Penn Valley Chamber of Commerce, an organization with 150 members. The chamber has relocated to 11336 Pleasant Valley Rd. and now shares space with the Penn Valley branch of the Nevada County Library. Currently, the chamber is working toward providing a large monument or sign overlooking Hwy. 20 that promotes the community and its events. It has also applied for a grant to update a local economic study. Under strong leadership, the area’s Community Foundation is working toward construction of a community center. About

Although many of the residents are retirees, more and more families are moving to the community each year, and the average age continues to go down.

HE MAIDU INDIANS were the first to reside in what is now known as Penn Valley. They migrated from the Sacramento Valley in 1833. Four camps settled in the area at sites now called Bridgeport, Lake Wildwood, Mooney Flat and Indian Springs. In 1848, discovery of gold in California brought the first white settlers to Penn Valley which is believed to be the earliest settlement in Nevada County. They traded bows, arrows and rifles to the Indians in exchange for animal skins. Many feel that Penn Valley is named for a Madame Penn who had a 320 acre homestead at the intersection of Squirrel and Grub Creeks. A gold miner turned rancher named James Ennor purchased the property from her in October of 1852. Eventually, the 320 acres grew to 700 and became a good part of what is now Penn Valley. Early settlement of the area occurred in part due to its location on a freight wagon route established between mining regions to the east and Sacramento. Penn Valley was an important stop with livery and blacksmithing services available. Growth of the area also came about when discouraged miners gave up their gold pans for plows, and the valley became an agricultural community. Known as the “Pantry of the Northern Mines,” the area had some of the finest land in the state and supplied fresh fruit, vegetables and meat to freight

ASHINGTON IS NESTLED in the canyon of the South Fork of the Yuba River 20 miles northeast of Nevada City, not far from the historic emigrant trail that is now Hwy. 20. Occupied since 1849, this scenic site was once a flourishing mining town of 3,000. There were hotels, restaurants and stores with supplies for the miners. Nearby Poorman’s Creek was probably the richest of all the creeks and tributaries of the South Yuba. Claims on the creek were considered poor if they did not pay an ounce of gold per day per man, and it is estimated that its yield was more than one million dollars. On Hwy. 20 near the Washington turn-off are two recommended stops – a scenic overlook and the Omega Overlook/Rest Stop. Here one can view the Alpha and Omega Diggins, once a large hydraulic mining operation.

NE OF THE FIRST SETTLEMENTS in Nevada County was Rough and Ready five miles west of Grass Valley. Established in the fall of 1849, it quickly grew to a thriving town of 3,000. The area was settled by a group of miners led by Captain A. A. Townsend. He served under “Old Rough and Ready” Zachary Taylor and so admired him, he named his company Rough and Ready, a name the town would adopt. Early mining success was dampened when the government imposed a Mining Tax on all claims. Furious miners met April 7, 1850, and the decision was made to secede from the Union. An independent state was organized called the Great Republic of Rough and Ready. It didn’t last long for when it came time to celebrate the

Fourth of July, Old Glory went up the flag pole and that was that.

French Corral

L

OCATED ON PLEASANT VALLEY Road three miles from historic Bridgeport, virtually nothing is left of French Corral but an old Wells Fargo building. The town’s name comes from a Frenchman who built a corral for his mules in the area. Property was cheap and so by July 1853, there were 70 houses, as well as stores and hotels. That year the town was destroyed by fire, rebuilt only to burn again the following year. French Corral is best known for having the first long distance telephone line which was 60 miles long and included 20 to 30 instruments. The one used for the first conversation is in the Smithsonian Institute. The line, used to assist area mines, became operational November 30, 1887, less than three years after Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone.

North San Juan

T

WAYDE CARROLL

HE THIRD LARGEST TOWN in Nevada County during the 1880s was North San Juan located on Hwy 49 north of Nevada City. With a population numbering several thousand, it was an important commercial center for area hydraulic gold mining interests. First settled in 1853, San Juan was presumably named after a site in Mexico with similar terrain. North was added in 1857 after the town grew to the point where a post office was needed, and the name San Juan had already been taken. Now a relatively quiet spot, the town once had 13 retail stores, hotels, a newspaper, bank, brewery and two manufacturing firms – one made brushes, the other hose.

S YOU TRAVEL UP Hwy. 49 from Auburn, the first Nevada County “community” encountered is an area which has come to be known as South County. Although rural in nature, it has been growing over the years. Among the early settlers was Michael Higgins, an Irish immigrant. He lived with his parents in Canada and New York before coming to California in 1852 at age 19. At first, Higgins mined at Placerville, Georgetown and on the American River. Then in 1860, he moved to the southern area of what would become Nevada County. Here he began to farm and raise stock on 160 acres. Higgins was also an owner of the Globe Hotel located in the area. It was a stage stop, and according to reports of the day,

was the site of dancing and merry-making, especially on St. Patrick’s Day. The section of South County bounded by Hwy. 49, Combie Road and the Bear River is now known as Higgins Corner. Today, this area is home to a shopping center with another scheduled to be built nearby. Not far away is DarkHorse, an 18-hole golf course. Completed about seven years ago, it was rated in the top 100 among 16,000 public courses nationwide in 2006-2007. South County is also home to Lake of the Pines (LOP), a gated community with approximately 2,000 homes surrounding a 230 acre lake. There are six parks and beaches on the lake, an 18-hole championship golf course, available to the public part of the time, and clubhouse. Begun as a retirement community, today LOP has as many families as retirees. Further up Hwy. 49 is the area known as Alta Sierra. Located on 2,500 acres, it offers residents a range of home designs and set-

The 18-hole course is open to the public for limited play. Serving a community of over 48,000 people is the South Nevada County Chamber of Commerce. Founded in 1998, it has grown in size over the years and now represents a number of area businesses. Besides special projects that benefit the community and mixers, the chamber also holds monthly lunch meetings which feature business speakers, as well as political candidates. A project of the chamber, was the construction of a stone monument that reads “Welcome to Nevada County, Established 1851,” flanked on either side by a gold miner. Located near the county line, the monument is seven feet tall and 15 feet wide, and sets the tone for a visit to Nevada County.

SIERRA COUNTY

Lakes Basin Region

Along the county’s southern boarder are the historic towns of Alleghany and Forest City. Here were found the richest goldbearing ores in the county. Also of interest is the Gold Rush town of Downieville, the county seat. First settled in 1851, it is nestled in a forested canyon at the confluence of the Downie River and North Fork of the Yuba River. In the mid1850s, it was one of the largest towns in California and missed becoming the state capitol by one vote. Just down the road is Sierra City, also an old mining town that has the charm of a Swiss alpine village. Located at the gateway to the Lakes Basin Region is Bassett’s Station which has served as a supply point for over 125 years. Filled with recreational opportunities, this area offers spectacular scenery including the 8,600 foot Sierra Buttes, high mountain lakes, streams and waterfalls.

Sierra Valley

WAYDE CARROLL

Downieville

With a population of 3,000 Sierra County is comprised of two quite different regions. On the west side, it is mountainous and heavily forested. The eastern side is dominated by a valley at 5,000 feet said to have been an ancient lake bed. It is the largest alpine valley in North America.

62

NEVADA COUNTY GOLD

The overlook on Hwy. 49 east of the Yuba Pass provides a spectacular panoramic view of the beautiful Sierra Valley and surrounding mountains that make up the eastern part of the county. Settled by the Swiss, this area retains its ranching and logging traditions begun in the 1800s to serve area mines. It is also a noted bird watching site due to its extensive wetlands and location on a major flyway. At the base of the eastern slope of the Sierra are the historic towns of Calpine, Sierraville and Sattley. Nearby Loyalton is the only incorporated city in Sierra County. It changed its name from Smith’s Neck in 1863 to show loyalty for the Union cause. Today, it remains a center for mountain agriculture and ranching. Near Sierraville, Sierra Hot Springs is one of the few public/private hot springs in the Sierra.

hy Nevada County?

Ask this question of newcomers, and the answer more often than not will be “because of the area’s natural beauty.” But, there is something else that makes this a special place – the diversity of the people who have been drawn here. General Chuck Yeager, the first man to fly faster than the speed of sound, makes his home in our county, as does Pulitzer Prize winning poet Gary Snyder. On any given day, one is apt to encounter entrepreneurs from the Bay area, aging hippies, tech researchers, small business owners, organic farmers, inventors, bankers, artists and musicians. All share in the common knowledge that Nevada County has a great deal to offer all of its residents.

Western Nevada County is fortunate to have a tech company history that dates to 1959 with the formation of Grass Valley Group (GVG). The company became and is still an important supplier of video equipment primarily for the broadcast industry. There are at least 16 high tech companies that have been started by former GVG employees or have a connection with the company. The area is also home to a diverse group of companies involved in manufacturing everything from furniture to precision glass products, environmental systems, utility trailers and medical equipment.

As the first face or voice many meet coming into our area, we have an opportunity even the chambers of commerce cannot provide - creating one-on-one relationships of trust. We’re the best cheerleaders for our area, telling what sites to see and extolling the virtues of our area. We are the number one referring agents to hotels, restaurants, shops, businesses, doctors, dentists, lawyers and the list goes on and on. One of the many benefits we have for our members is our communication system, which allows the public the benefit of accessing the latest changes in our real estate market.

EVADA COUNTY IS THE HEART of the Gold Country, or as some say, “Welcome to God’s country.” I’m sure in His creation endeavor, He lingered here. Highway 49, appropriately named after the ‘49ers of the Gold Rush, is the ribbon of highway linking the lode bearing communities of the Sierra. It was the production from the mines that first drew world attention, but agriculture also drew attention to our region by winning Grand Prize at the San Francisco World’s Fair. Where a rich heritage abounds, a creative genius and industrious people are found strategically placed on a landscape almost as diverse as its people. In fact, we have a continent within a county, from low elevation grasslands to high country granite crags, with everything in between! The beauty of our area is only surpassed by the kindness and generosity of its people. Creativity abounds with events such as the Draft Horse Classic, Nevada County Fair, local theatre and musical productions, and numerous other functions occurring every weekend. Our heart for the children and young people in our area has given rise to rich educational experiences found in private, public and charter schools which cover the full spectrum from pre-school through community college. Our county has much to offer, but it is the collaboration and commitment to our community from our Nevada County Association of REALTORS® of which I am most proud. You will find us elected to various school and fire department boards, and spending countless hours in numerous volunteer organizations. As an organization of REALTORS®, we find ourselves on par with the hospital as to the number of individuals employed in our industry.

The first local development can be found in Nevada City on Broad Street near Hwy. 49. A second development is scheduled to be constructed in Grass Valley. Called Wolf Creek Village, it is located at Freeman Lane and McKnight Way near stores and services. Cohousing communities consist of pri-

IVING A LIFESTYLE that is more environmentally friendly is a concept that many in Nevada County embrace. For example, newcomers may be surprised at how many solar companies there are in the area â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at least a dozen at last count. There are also a number of â&#x20AC;&#x153;greenâ&#x20AC;? building products from which to choose from structural insulated panels to insulated concrete forms, recycled and manufactured lumber products, straw bales and natural cotton insulation. Nevada County also has an impressive recycling program with a wealth of information available at www.NevadaCountyRecycles.com. And recently, another resource has been added to the mix with the opening of the APPLE Center for Sustainable Living on Commercial Street (next to the public parking lot) in Nevada City. There are also plenty of resources for those who want to grow some of their own food, and the Nevada County Master Gardeners holds composting workshops throughout the year at the Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rood Center. Call them at (530) 273-0919 for more information.

Protect Your home Before Fire Season ly increases the chance your house will survive a wildfire. Depending on slope, vegetation type and size, the horizontal distance between aerial fuels such as tree crowns or high brush should range from 4 feet on flat ground up to 40 feet on steeper slopes. The vertical clearance between lower limbs of aerial fuels and the nearest surface fuels should have the same range. In 2008, California adopted new building codes to help increase the survivability of homes in the event of a wildfire. New construction is required to follow these codes. Those living in homes built before January 2008, should consider upgrades if they are in a WUI area. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Material Provided by Gallup Construction.

The best way to find out if your home is in a WUI area is through the Fire and Resource Assessment Program Web site at www.frap.fire.ca.gov/. It will help locate where your home is in relation to the fire hazard severity zones in our area. Many who live in Nevada County live in or near a WUI area.

Q. My oak tree leaves are turning brown. What’s wrong?

A. It is necessary to identify what kind of oak you have and to observe symptoms; note the location, extent and duration of the symptoms. Oak leaves can turn brown because weather conditions are promoting oak anthracnose, a temporary problem that will pass when the weather changes. On the other hand, leaves may be brown because of root rot, a problem that requires the attention of an arborist. Native oaks are relatively resistant to natural damaging factors. But because of their shallow root systems, they are easily suffocated by heavy equipment under the tree’s canopy, grading, backfilling, trenching or summer water near the tree. Keep summer water more than 10 feet away from the truck.

MARY ANNE DAVIS

Q. The blossoms are falling off my tomato plants. What do I do?

Q. How do I get rid of powdery mildew, rust or black spot on my roses?

A. These are fungal diseases that can be prevented by using disease-resistant varieties of roses. Sanitation practices such as pruning out diseased or damaged stems, picking up fallen leaves and deadheading prevent disease. Overhead watering is an effective way to manage powdery mildew, but it should be done before midday. For powdery mildew and black spot, use potassium bicarbonate, household baking soda, or neem oil. A sulfur spray when roses are dormant can prevent rust.

88

NEVADA COUNTY GOLD

A. Plant varieties that are adapted to California’s hot summers. Don’t plant them too early, and plant tomatoes where they get at least six hours of sun per day. Tomato blossoms may fall if the night temperatures are below 55 degrees or day temperatures are above 90 degrees, and if the plants get too much shade or too much nitrogen fertilizer.

SENIORS

Focus on Keeping Active and Social Nevada County has long been a popular retirement destination. Active seniors will find plenty to do and those who need help will find organizations that focus on independent living. Community Center

Since 1982, the Gold Country Community Center, located in Grass Valley, has provided a variety of services for seniors. One popular program is the High Noon Cafe which provides lunches at the center and for the home-bound. Special services available to seniors include blood pressure checks the second Wednesday of each month from 11:15 am to noon and an enhanced lunch program each Wednesday. There is also a firewood program. The lunch program and offices are located at the Nevada City Senior Apartments, 841 Old Tunnel Rd., Grass Valley. Business hours are 8:30 am to 3:00 pm Monday through Friday; (530) 273-4961. www.goldcountrycenter.org

“Your Key to Peace of Mind”

Volunteerism

Truckee

One way to get involved in the community is through the Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (R.S.V.P.). Here those 55 and older will find opportunities at local non-profits, government agencies and schools. R.S.V.P. volunteers work with both the California Highway Patrol and sheriff’s office, are found a the Nevada County Food Bank, at non-profit thrift stores, visiting isolated seniors and fostering animals from the local shelter. Volunteers are also members of the hospital auxiliary, serve as museum docents, and help out with office and secretarial work. Then there is the “One Time Only” team which is very social and meets for specific projects like preparing mailings for the United Way or Big Brothers/Big Sisters. R.S.V.P is located at 471 Sutton Way #202, Grass Valley; (530) 271-0255.

New Buildings for Sierra College The Nevada County Campus located at 250 Sierra College Dr. was opened in 1996 and now serves some 3,000 students. The campus has been undergoing a major building project which adds 72,000 square feet of space. Buildings in phase one have been completed and include a new classroom building and new arts buildings. Work is well under way on the second phase with a wellness center set to be completed by fall of 2010. A 225-seat multipurpose room and a gymnasium should be completed in the spring of 2011. Renovation work is being done on several buildings and also includes repainting the exteriors of all older buildings. The trend at the Nevada County Campus is a younger student population, which also means there are more full-time students. Some 19 associate degrees can be earned on the campus. Besides general education courses, and vocational and technical programs, the college has non-credit courses for seniors and an early college program with 160 students. Sierra College/Truckee

Offering associate degrees, Sierra College Truckee has served the community for over 20 years. Thanks to a successful bond campaign, the college is now housed in a new 25,000 square foot building at 11001 College Trail off Hwy. 89 which was opened October 2008. Eastern Nevada County Schools

The Tahoe-Truckee Unified School District encompasses about 720 square miles and serves students living in eastern Nevada County and portions of Placer County. There are currently 10 schools in the district that cover K-12, as well as adult and home school programs.

Western Nevada County Schools

The area has 10 school districts guided by local control. Included are some 20 schools from K-12, as well as a number of charter schools, preschools and schools to fit special requirements. Libraries

The Nevada County Library System includes three main branches, two library stations and a history library for research. Services include childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, young adult and literacy programs, public internet access and a book buddy program for those who are unable to physically visit a library.

Rush history, and we are an easy drive from San Francisco and Sacramento International Airports. Also, vendors and venues are priced for the local economy making Nevada County a real value. The county with its various elevations offers sites with very distinct characteristics. At the higher elevations in Truckee and Donner Lake, there are the magnificent Sierra Nevada mountains with towering pines, clear lakes and streams. Nevada City has Victorian charm and historic architecture offering year round beauty and accessibility. Grass Valley has kept the rustic downtown appeal from the days of the gold miners. The softly rolling hills of the lower elevations offer an abundance of vineyards, wineries and tasting rooms set amid ancient oaks.

he last Thursday of each month a group gathers at Grass Valley's United Methodist Church to keep alive a tradition that began with the Cornish who immigrated to the area when hardrock mining was being established in the 1860s. This monthly gathering of 30 or so women and men produces almost 1,000 pasties (meat pies) which are sold to those lucky enough to be on their "list."

underground mining to Grass Valley, and you'll discover they continue to make Cornish meat pies using old family recipes. It is traditional to make pasties from meat (usually beef), potatoes, onions and turnips encased in a pie like crust shaped to form a semicircle. Pronounced pass-tee, they are savory and filling and were sent underground with the miners for their noonday meal. The buckets they carried had three compartments. Tea was in the bottom, a pasty in the middle and usually a saffron bun was on the top. The bucket hung on a stick in the mine with a candle under it thus heating not only the tea but the entire meal. Without a doubt, the Cornish had a great deal to do with the growth of Grass Valley. They came to be called Cousin Jacks because every Cornishman you talked to seemed to have a cousin in Cornwall waiting to come to America. Once here, they were often introduced as “my Cousin Jack

has a rich cultural tradition. As early as 1851, local theatres were attracting notables of the day to sing, act, dance and lecture. Still going strong is the Nevada Theatre built in 1865. The area has also produced some talented performers including Emma Nevada who made her singing debut at age three in Nevada City around 1862. She would go on to become a world renown opera singer. Today, the local arts scene continues the tradition of quality set long ago, and two popular organizations have distinguished themselves with the quality of their performances – Music in the Mountains and InConcert Sierra, formerly Twin Cities Concert Association.

THE CENTER FOR THE ARTS

The Center for the Arts has been the hub of Nevada County’s very busy artistic community for over 10 years. It’s gone through major growth to include a 300 seat theatre, 90 seat black-box theater, state-of-the art dance studios, an art gallery, meeting space and production facilities. Nevada County’s artists and performers have stepped up to showcase local talent with worldclass productions of concerts and community theatre. The Center also fills a niche for national touring artists being off-market from Sacramento, Reno/Tahoe and the Bay Area. One of the major achievements has been the renovation of the building’s facade from a deteriorating former car dealership to an award wining art deco theatre. Julie Baker has been executive director since 2009, and she’s moving the Center out into the community in exciting ways. There are new partnerships with Music in the Mountains, InConcert Sierra, The Performing Arts Guild and many more local arts organizations to put the building to more and better uses. Among the performers that have been associated with the Center are The Smothers Brothers, Nanci September 25, House of Floyd.

Banner Cascade Trail: A Well-Used Legacy By Hank Meals

P

art of the local legacy of the gold mining era is a system of ditches, or canals, some with adjacent trails. One such trail, the Banner Cascade Trail, provides the perfect place to walk, jog or ride at a pace appropriate to your abilities or inclination. Most 19th century canals were designed to drop an average of 10 to 15 feet per mile, a very gentle grade. The Banner Cascade Trail parallels a four and one-half mile segment of the Lower Cascade Canal between Red Dog Road and Gracie Road near Nevada City. It was constructed in 1883 to deliver water to operate machinery for the Idaho Mine in Grass Valley. In 1897, water from the canal provided hydroelectricity to the Charannot Mine, and in 1927, it was sold to the Nevada Irrigation District (NID). Locals have been hiking this canal recreationally since the 1920s. Water is essential for gold mining. Miners conveyed it to their claims in ditches. During the hydraulic mining era water companies grew rapidly ultimately becoming the owners of the mines they once served. The original Cascade Ditch was created in 1860 to serve the hydraulic mines at Little York, Red Dog, You Bet, Hunt’s Hill, Quaker Hill, Scott’s Flat and Buckeye Hill. In 1862, the ditch was sold to the much larger South Yuba Canal Company. At the time, there were nearly 600 miles of ditches operating in Nevada County. Mining companies used water exclusively for its mechanical properties. In hydraulic mining water was used to break down soil banks. Water also powered Pelton wheels and pumps, as well as many other functions. In May of 1859, a reporter for Hutching’s California Magazine observed, “Water is the life-blood of the mines...it is used for everything but drinking.”

The trail, at an elevation of 3,200 feet, is surrounded by Douglas fir and incense cedar with occasional stands of madrone and black oak. In the wetter areas, where the trail crosses tributaries of Little Deer Creek, there are maple, alder, dogwood and seldom seen California yew. Autumn colors make this trail a popular destination in the fall. Many colorful birds visit the area in the spring. Among them are black-headed grosbeaks (orange), western tanagers (yellow), belted kingfishers (blue) and several species of warblers (yellow). There are also several species of owls, including great horned and northern pygmy owls. If you are lucky and hear a loud tapping of trees, look for the spectacular black, white and red pileated woodpecker. Only one songbird spends the winter - the gray and ordinary looking American dipper or water ouzel. But this is not an ordinary bird. About the size of a robin the ouzel hides its nest alongside cascading streams and is capable of walking on the bottom of streams in search of insects. Other aquatic adaptations include eyes designed to see underwater and nostrils with flaps to keep water out. Easy to spot, the ouzel can often be seen flying above the surface of the water in the canal. John Muir was so impressed with the ouzel he devoted an entire chapter to the bird in his 1894 classic The Mountains of California. This is a very social trail. On it you will meet people walking and talking with friends and/or family, walking dogs and pushing toddlers. There are also equestrians, joggers, bicyclists, and when it snows, cross-country skiers and snowshoers. Best of all, everyone says hello or at least, nods.

Contact the Nevada County Land Trust (530) 272-5994

No motorized vehicles are allowed on the trail, and dogs must be kept on a leash. Please respect private property by staying on the trail.

How to Get There The trail is accessible from either Red Dog Road or Gracie Road, both in Nevada City. Red Dog Road: From Broad Street in Nevada City cross the bridge over the freeway and proceed east on Boulder Street. As it climbs it becomes Red Dog Road. Two and one-half miles from Nevada City you will cross a ditch with limited roadside parking beyond it. Park here. If you see Snowline Road you just past it. The obvious trail begins on the right side (south) of the road behind a gate. Gracie Road: The Banner Lava Cap Road is located between Nevada City and Brunswick Basin off the Old Grass Valley-Nevada City Highway (1.6 miles south of Nevada City). Banner Lava Cap crosses over the freeway and proceeds southeast and then east as it climbs Banner Mountain. After driving for 2.3 miles, you will see Gracie Road and a clearly marked parking area for the trail.

HANK MEALS

A Sampler of Nevada County Trails By Hank Meals

Here is a list of recommended hiking trails that takes you from the lowest to the highest elevation trails in Nevada County. They vary in length from less than a mile to a full day’s slog. ROCK CREEK TRAIL

An easy and educational trail located in a dense Douglas fir forest. A short hike for various ages and differing abilities. Shady, so stays cool all summer long. Less than 1 mile long. Directions: From Nevada City drive Hwy. 20 east for 6 miles to Washington Ridge Conservation Camp turnoff. Turn left and continue for 1 mile where you will see another sign for the trail. Turn left on a gravel road and continue for 1.2 miles to the well-signed parking area at the trailhead.

Directions to Purdon Crossing: From intersection of Hwys. 20 & 49 in Nevada City, turn west on Hwy. 49 and continue a short distance to traffic light, turn right on to North Bloomfield Road. Go 1/2 mile and turn left at the “T.” Take Lake Vera Road-Purdon Road for 5.5 miles to Purdon Crossing. Lower part of road is rough and narrow. Directions to Edwards Crossing: Follow above directions to the “T,” but turn right. From here it is 7 miles to Edwards Crossing on paved but narrow and winding road, so stay on your side of road.

PURDON CROSSING-EDWARDS CROSSING

HANK MEALS

Shortest and most popular segment of the South Yuba Trail is the 4.5 miles between Purdon and Edwards Crossings. Western part of trail has dense oak and conifer forest. There are several spur trails down to secluded spots on the river. Eastern half is more rocky with dramatic views. For moderately easy hike, you can have a driver drop you off at one trailhead and pick you up at the other.

NEVADA COUNTY GOLD

ROUND LAKE TRAIL TO ISLAND LAKE

(Grouse Ridge Roadless Area) From the trailhead at Carr Lake, the Round Lake Trail heads upslope to the east and passes the 51-acre reservoir called Feely Lake. On north side of lake is Fall Creek Mountain, one of the landmark peaks in the Grouse Ridge Area at 7,490 feet. Continue on trail to intersection with Grouse Ridge Trail. To the northeast lies Island Lake beautiful, popular, good campsites. Directions: From Hwy. 20 east of Nevada City, drive the Bowman Lake Road for 8.8 miles to Forest Service Road 17. Take Road 17 and continue about 2.5 miles to Carr Lake. The road is well signed. There are unimproved campsites and parking at Carr Lake. DONNER PASS-DONNER SUMMIT

Easy 3.5 mile segment of the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) between Donner Pass and Donner Summit. Offers splendid views of Donner Lake, Truckee River

Donner Pass

canyon, I-80 and huge displays of granite. Most people walk a portion of the trail, then backtrack to where they are parked, but it’s easy to arrange for another vehicle at one end or the other. Directions to Donner Pass: Donner Pass was a summit crossing used by the indigenous people for thousands of years. Also route of Emigrant Trail. Today, it is Donner Pass Road. To get there from I-80, take Norden exit to Sugar Bowl/Donner Ski Ranch area. PCT begins just east of Donner Ski Ranch. Directions to Donner Summit: It is where 1-80 crosses the summit at Euer Saddle. There is a large rest stop here and access to the PCT, no overnight parking allowed. Nearby is better trailhead to PCT with overnight parking and a map. Take Boreal Ridge exit located just west of summit. Get on south side of I-80 and follow road that parallels the highway to the northeast for 0.3 mile to a US Forest Service maintained trailhead. From trailhead walk the Pacific Crest Access trail 0.5 mile to the PCT.

ALSO RECOMMENDED: Buttermilk Trail at South Yuba River State Park (Bridgeport), Independence Trail (6 miles from Nevada City on Hwy. 49), South Yuba Campground to Poorman Creek (part of South Yuba Trail), Diggins Loop Trail and Humbug Creek Trail (Malakoff Diggins State Park), Loney Meadows Nature Trail (Grouse Ridge Roadless Area).
