Nevada City is the governmental center of Nevada County in the State of California. Wait, what? Yup, it’s located in California, not Nevada.
Another “Say what?” fact about Nevada City is that it is twinned with Penzance, a seaside town in Cornwall, UK, and the nearby tin and copper mining town of St Just in Penwith, Cornwall, UK. Per Wikipedia, the twinning is a result of Cornish migration during the Californian gold rush where Cornish mining expertise migrated to the area.
It was first settled in 1849, during the California Gold Rush, as Nevada which means “snow-covered” in Spanish. The city has an old western style charm that attracts tourists with an abundance of outdoor recreation, history, fine arts and entertainment and special events. On top of that, the town has a nice selection of interesting architecture and doors.
Below are a few of the doors I came across on a leisurely stroll through the main part of town.
