|City of Grass Valley - If you ask Grass Valley residents what is so special about their community, they'll probably begin by telling you about the landscape - the charming historic gold rush towns surrounded by rolling hills and towering green pines, the graceful oaks shading pastures in the lower elevations, the snow-covered Sierra peaks in the background. They will tell you about the quality of life that makes Grass Valley and western Nevada County unique.
Time Magazine, in its December 8, 1998 edition, named Grass Valley as one of California's "Hot Small Towns" and nearby Nevada City was featured in The Great Towns of America.
Even with all of its rural appeal, the community is not isolated. The California State Capitol, Sacramento, is only an hour's drive away. To the east, the fun and excitement of Reno and Lake Tahoe are within easy driving distance.
Chamber of Commerce - In addition to being an excellent place to shop and dine, downtown Grass Valley, California is also the cultural center of Nevada County. With its new Center for the Arts that regularly features popular music & theatrical venues, to wine tasting rooms and the recently renovated Del Oro Theatre, there is always something to do.
Local Parks - It is said that Grass Valley was named by settlers whose cattle had wandered from their campsite on Greenhorn Creek to a "grassy valley" nearby where the grazing was better. Miners panning for gold along Wolf Creek and a major discovery of gold-bearing quartz in 1850 started a boom. Grass Valley became home to the Empire Mine, one of the richest mines in California (now Empire Mine State Park).
