NCHS Tour of You Bet

The Nevada County Historical Society invites the public to join them on a guided tour to the You Bet and old Red Dog towns and mining sites tomorrow (Saturday September 29th) led by the Author of “California You Bet  – Gold Fever,” Jerry Brady.  Brady’s family grew up in the mining town of You Bet and other members of the Brady family plan to give a detailed description of Placer and hydraulic mining in the 1930’s. Brady says one fascinating story is about Ah TIE and the Chinese miner’s who made thousands of dollars with a stake at  You Bet, before they were run off.
