Grass Valley, California sits nestled in the vibrant Sierra Foothills at the heart of Gold Country. Rich with history and home to the Empire, Northstar, Pennsylvania and Brunswick mines (among others), Grass Valley was a prosperous gold rush town in the early 1900’s. Throughout their 100 year run, over $400 million in gold was extracted from these mines!
It was the gold that that pulled thousands over some of the roughest terrain through the Sierras. Travelers who made the journey discovered a robust landscape of grassy pastures, creeks, and good soil. Though the old gold rush town was known by many different names, the one that stuck, Grass Valley, reflects just what a relief it was for those early settlers to reach.
What began as a rundown settlement blossomed into a real-life town. Today, Grass Valley is more so known for the close-knit community charm it exudes, several exciting local events such as the Nevada County Fair and the Draft Horse Classic, and its close proximity to high traffic tourist areas like Reno, Tahoe and Truckee.
