NID Featured at Historical Society Talk

The history of the Nevada Irrigation District is the subject at this month’s Nevada County Historical Society Meeting. Les Nicholson will be the guest speaker. He was with the N-I-D for about 34 years before retiring, and his father also worked for N-I-D for a number of years. Nicholson says the N-I-D was formed in the 1920s, and that most people believe it was put together by a group of ranchers because the mining industry was drying up.
