History

:

The Major Gold Mining Company of California was incorporated in 1913. The company operated 220 acres or placer ground near Nevada City. Nevada City was first settled in 1849, during the California Gold Rush. Nevada, which means "snow-covered," was chosen because of the snow-topped mountains in the area. In 1850-51, it was the most important mining town in the state, Nevada County being the leading gold-mining county in the state. The town of Nevada was incorporated on April 19, 1856. In 1864, the word “City” was added to the name to relieve confusion with the bordering state of Nevada. The former town of Coyoteville later became Nevada City's northwestern section.
