New book: Exploring Nevada County

A new book “Exploring Nevada County: An Illustrated Guide to Local Landmarks and Historic Sites” has been published by Comstock Bonanza Press that is worth reading.

“About 170 photographs and 16 detailed maps show you exactly how to find each of the recorded landmarks, historic buildings and monuments in Nevada County, many dating from the early 1850s,” according to the introduction. “The exact text of every plaque is included, along with informative notes to explain occasional discrepancies or to provide additional facts.”

It was compiled and photographed by members of the Nevada County Historical Landmarks Commission. We reviewed the book and enjoyed it.
