Also see . . . A Brief History of Nevada County. Prior to its creation Nevada County had been part of Yuba County. The population growth following the gold rush of 1849-50 plus the distance of the courts for trial of important criminal and civil business, resulted in the move for a separate county organization and in 1851 Nevada County was formed.
