News: Restoring Virginia City

Located just one mile west of Virginia City and once a very active mining town, Nevada City now has only a few year-round residents. Some of the of the buildings located here are original to Nevada City, such as the Star Bakery. Many other buildings were moved from their original locations and were restored for historical preservation. During the summer the town is visited by many people who enjoy this doorway to the past. 

History

Nevada City, down the Gulch from Virginia City, was a well established mining town in the early 1860's. Many business houses were located three as a great number of miners worked in the area. Many of the early business houses are still to be seen in Nevada City. This historic mining community has been restored in part by Mr. and Mrs. Charles Bovey. Nevada City was named after Nevada City, Nevada, another mining community.*

Schools

Any students in this area usually attend Ennis schools. The school bus route is along Hwy 287.

Favorite Places

Nevada City itself! I prefer to arrive early in the day for plenty of time to explore Nevada City's outdoor museum of dirt roads and preserved houses and buildings, and for a ride on the train between Nevada City and Virginia City. Buy your train tickets early and find out what the schedule is, then wander about Nevada City. If you miss the train, don't worry. They'll be plenty to explore, and the train will be back and ready to leave again the next hour.
