Nevada City is one of several towns that grew after an 1860s gold rush in the Alder Gulch/Ruby River district. Virginia City, which is a mile and a half east of Nevada City was by far the largest of those towns. Today Nevada City is kind of an extension of Virginia City and its old-west-theme-park style tourist development. A tourist train operates between the two towns. I'm not entirely sure how authentic Nevada City's buildings are. Many are reconstructions while some are original. The town has adopted a unpainted wood theme except for its Victorian train station. Alder, which is about 7 miles west of Nevada City is another remnant gold rush town which has not been developed for tourism.
