A Snapshot of Graniterock History

Posted by Rose Ann Woolpert on Mar 18, 2015

100 years ago In 1914, Graniterock expanded its quarry operations with the purchase of 151 acres from Henry F. Blohm. The property, a section of the Jesse D.

If you find yourself there this summer, one very special Nevada City building is worth a visit: The Doris Foley Library for Historical Research, once known as the Nevada City Library.
