Blog for Downtown Grass Valley

Monday, November 12th









Yesterday was Veteran’s Day.  We want to thank all those who have served in the United States Armed Forces.

If you haven’t already, please stop by 206 W. Main St., Grass Valley to view “The Art of War”– 1914-1919 display.  This is a Window Gallery of the Poster Art of World War I” which showcases some of the dynamic posters that rallied our nation.  Thanks to the combined efforts of the Grass Valley Historical Commission members, Teresa Poston, Linda Jack, Alice Enochs, Jedidiah Watson, Michael Lewis, Lance Lowe and the Nevada County Historical Society, the windows of a currently-vacant storefront has been transformed into a nostalgic gallery celebrating 100 years since the signing of the Armistice Agreement. . This exhibit will run throughout November.

The Historical Society’s participation in this project was made possible with support from California Humanities, a partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.  Visit
