City of Grass Valley

Grass Valley is rich in Cornish heritage and officially became the "most Cornish place in America"in 2015.  Many of the early settlers to this area were miners from Cornwall England whose mining skills were needed to mine gold. Grass Valley is the location of the Empire Mine and North Star Mine, two of the richest mines in California.  They still hold on to their Cornish heritage with Cornish Christmas, St. Piran's Day celebrations and their popular Cornish pasties.
