Just a little nugget of Grass Valley Gold Rush history…. In earlier articles, you’ve read that the town I love recently won a Cultural District designation from the California Arts Council. Bravo, well deserved! The cultural assets of Nevada County are, by definition, vast. The Grass Valley- Nevada City Cultural District encompasses two cities and an extensive area beyond our city limits. The history of the district is represented in its cultural diversity. We celebrate all modalities of the arts and like to boast that we’re small towns with big-time entertainment. Forested rolling hills surround us, graced with parks, trails, lakes, creeks, and the Yuba River: outdoor playgrounds that themselves have played a significant role in the history of Western Nevada County. As the previous name of Centerville implies, we sit stage front center, well positioned to access all of Nevada County’s assets. Grass Valley is like no other city, the bustling mining camp of 1848 has transformed itself into a present-day BaseCamp, and is the prime venue for discovering Nevada County.
