About Nevada County

How to Beat a Nevada County Traffic Ticket

Nevada is the Spanish word for “snowy” or “snow covered” and was derived from the name of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Nevada City was actually the first to get its name, before the county formed in 1851 and the neighboring state also took the name Nevada in 1861. One of the most well-known stories of the area is of the Donner Party (for which Donner Lake derivied its name). The Donner Party was crossing the west in a wagon train in 1846, when due to a heavy early snowfall where trapped in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Their supplies ran low and after months without relief, only 48 of the original 87 members of the party survived having eaten the dead for survival. California historians describe this tragedy as one of the most bizarre in western-US migration history.

The County, now home to just under 100,000 people, was officially formed in 1851 and encompasses 974 square miles. Nevada County closely resembles the Deringer pocket pistol on a map and includes Penn Valley, Nevada City, and the town of Truckee. It also shares a border with the state of Nevada.

Nevada County and Nevada City in particular, has been listed among the top 10 travel destinations by Lonely Planet and the second best “river city” by Outside Magazine. Visitors can explore native wildflowers through tours of the county, take a wine and whitewater adventure, or mountain bike through the lush forests and river trails.
