NCHS Speaker Night Features Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park

State Park Ranger Greg Sherr has worked at Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park for over ten years, where he and his wife Christy have shared the ranger position. Greg will share stories and images from the hydraulic mining era, at the Nevada County Historical Societies Speaker Night this Thursday evening.  He has a fascinating history about the North Bloomfield Townsite, which is a Nationally Registered Historic Site. The town site is still open to visitors even though the park is on the state list for closure.

“There is a general store that is fully furnished and the Cummins Hall Museum is one of the top attractions as well, but you can go see the school house at Malakoff Diggins. There are quite a few historic buildings that even if the park museum is not open, you can walk around with a self guided brochure, which we have in front of the museum.”

Sherr will also offer information concerning the current fiscal crisis and service reductions / closure status affecting Malakoff Diggins, South Yuba River, and other parks statewide. This informative presentation will be held in the Conference Room of the Madelyn Helling Library.  Thursday evening beginning at 7pm. Attendance is free and open to the public and refreshments will be provided.
