Interactive Map Available of Nevada County Landmarks

All those interested in the history of Nevada County will be delighted to learn that much of that history can now be accessed through a web based interactive map. The map is the result of a joint effort by the Nevada County Historical Landmarks Commission and Nevada County GIS staff, in collaboration with prominent local historian, David Comstock. Nevada County has over 200 sites which have been designated as historical landmarks. Comstock says the interactive map locates each historic site on a County map.

Many of the landmarks have been designated by the Nevada County Historical Landmarks Commission; others by federal and state authorities, the Nevada County Historical Society, the Clampers, The Native Sons and Daughters of the Golden West, and other local veterans and civic groups.

The map can be used for a virtual tour, or as a guide to exploring Nevada County by car, bicycle or foot. The map works with mobile devices, such as smartphones or tablets, as well as desktop computers.
The map is an outgrowth of a book titled “Exploring Nevada County” previously published by David Comstock. He says this interactive map takes the experience of learning about the landmarks one step further.
