THE NORTH STAR MINING MUSEUM
& PELTON WHEEL EXHIBIT

The North Star Mining Museum, a part of the Nevada County Historical Society, is one of the ‘gems’ of Nevada County and exists not only to preserve and protect our area’s mining heritage but also educates and informs people not only about the mining process, but also about the impact the industry had upon the humanity of the people who built the mines and those who toiled there during their operation.
