The Nevada County Historical Landmarks Commission

Nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, Nevada County lay at the heart of the 49er experience. Many thousands came here to make their fortune and much evidence of their successes and occasional failures remains. From bustling towns still largely unchanged from the Gold Rush era to ghost towns, from gold mines and mining equipment to covered bridges and the first long-distance telephone line, these and much more can be found among over 200 historical landmarks situated in Nevada County. The Nevada County Historical Landmarks Commission exists to help you find and enjoy them. A good way to start is by using our interactive map, developed with the support of the Nevada County Geographical Information Systems unit. With special thanks to Lindsey Gordon of the County’s GIS unit, the latest version of the interactive map is now live. Here is the link if you want to take it for a spin.

Information about registering a landmark can be found here.
