Fodor's Expert Review Miners Foundry

Nevada City Historical

The foundry, erected in 1856, produced machines for gold mining and logging. The Pelton Water Wheel, a power source for the mines (the wheel also jump-started the hydroelectric power industry), was invented here. The building is now used to stage art, dance, music, and film events.
