New Research Facility:
The Searls Library celebrated the grand opening of it's new facility on May 9, 2015.
161 Nevada City Highway
(at the "Y" of Ridge, Gold Flat and Zion
west of 7 Hills shopping dist.)
The collection is now greatly expanded.
The "old" and beloved historic Searls Library in downtown Nevada City has been unavailable for many months while its collection has been carefully relocated to the new facility. The basic Searls collection will now be reunited with estranged parts of the Nevada County Historical Society's archival inventory, much of which has been 'stored' throughout the county at various locations for many years.
