Nevada County Brings Life to a Golden History

John LaRosa 04/17/2014

A history buff will find plenty of exciting spots to visit when beginning to look at Nevada County real estate. The beautiful scenery of this area coupled with the many historical attractions make Nevada County a great place to live, work, learn and play.

Empire Mine State Historic Park pays homage to the men and women who settled and worked in the area in the 1800s. Mineyard Living History volunteers dress in period costumes while portraying what life was like for the gold miners, blacksmiths, and settlers. A traditional Miner’s Picnic with entertainment, equipment demonstrations, antique cars, a cake walk, and children’s activities is held during the summer.

Alta Sierra Biblical Gardens, a peaceful non-denominational setting, is a welcome haven for Christians, garden groups, artists, or anyone who appreciates the solitude of a gorgeous garden. The old wagon trail used by travelers during the 1860s gold rush leads to a twenty-two acre retreat with a stream, waterfalls and amazing garden with statues based on Bible stories.

Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park is a place to focus on the history of the county. Visitors can take part in living history days at least once a month at the park. This gives an opportunity for a hands-on learning experience about life in the mid-1800s. Nevada County will give the historically inclined hobbyist, writer, or re-enactor a golden opportunity to settle in history-rich California.
