Grass Valley sits above 2,500 feet in the beautiful western Sierra Nevada foothills with a population of under 13,000. The town was the site of two of the biggest mines during the California Gold Rush: the Empire Mine and North Star Mine. Many of the miners immigrated from the equally rugged Cornwall region of England, and that legacy is still alive with the annual Cornish Christmas and St. Piran’s Day celebrations.
