An Abundance of Gold

Nevada City is to other mining towns of the Sierra foothills, a venerable old lady sitting nestled amongst her seven hills, placidly fanning herself in the sun.

Familiarly known as the Queen of the Northern Mines, she is respected not only for the large amounts of gold extracted  from her bosom, but praised for her rough elegance and charm, which becomes quite apparent

when one enters the city. 

“There’s gold in them thar hills” was the cry of the forty-niners. Today, gold is  found in the spectacular Autumn foliage displayed in the century old sugar maples and other trees that abound within the Victorian neighborhoods of Nevada City. Gold can also be found in the many thousands of stories of lives lived in the foothills, many of those stories rest patiently to be discovered in

Pine Grove Cemetery.
