Observing Memorial Day

Monday, May 27, is Memorial Day. The Nevada County Historical Landmarks Commission would like to remind you that there are several historical landmarks in the County you might wish to visit to honor those who died while fighting for our country

In Nevada City, Memorial Grove is located on Max Solaro Drive in Pioneer Park. Memorial Grove contains monuments and plaques honoring those who died in World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the War on Terror and those missing in action. In Grass Valley, Memorial Park, corner of Race St and Colfax Ave, contains monuments and plaques honoring those who died in World Wars I and II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War and an extensive Marines Memorial. Also in Grass Valley, are Veterans Memorial Flagstaffs at the entrances to Greenwood and Catholic cemeteries on W. Main St.

You can learn more about these monuments, or visit them virtually, by opening an electronic copy of Exploring Nevada County, which catalogues all the over 200 historical landmarks in the County, and is available for any smartphone or tablet from Apple or Amazon. Go to You Bet Press (youbetpress.com) to find clickable links.

Prefer paper? There are still copies of the last edition available from Comstock Bonanza Press https://bit.ly/2IUHYi0
