Historical Society’s Annual Picnic
The Sierra County Historical Society‘s annual picnic was held on Sunday, September 14 at the Kentucky Mine in Sierra City. Members and guests lunched under the trees, and after a short business meeting were treated to a talk on Downieville history by board member Bill Copren.
Preceding the event a memorial bench was dedicated in the name of gold miner and historian David Smith who passed away last year. David was the son of Charles and Beth Smith of Sierra City and Grass Valley. Next time you visit the mine, be sure to stop for a rest on the rustic bench located by the trestle.
