(If you have not been there, you can find it on Google Maps. It’s easy to find – just go past the Fairgrounds on McCourtney Road. Turn left onto Auburn Road (at the CHP Building corner opposite the Fairgrounds Gate #3). In approximately one mile, turn left at the sign for North Star Historic Conservancy. As you enter the historic grounds, travel up and around to the main building. Parking is in the front and extended beyond for parking overflow. There are several spaces for disabled parking, and a driveway for drop off.)

June Program: Tour of the North Star House and Gardens

Plan to gather with your Newcomers Club friends for our final luncheon of the year as we venture out from our usual location at the Alta Sierra Country Club to the beautiful grounds of the North Star Historic Conservancy located at 12075 Auburn Road, Grass Valley. We don’t have different venues very often; don’t miss this opportunity to visit a special place that is becoming a favorite local venue for weddings and special events.

Grass Valley’s popular BackPorch Market will cater our gourmet picnic lunch, and we will be able to enjoy dining “al fresco” under shade screens. The North Star Historic Conservancy board will present a very informative program. We will then have smaller group tours of the Julia Morgan designed North Star House and the grounds, guided by docents who will share their knowledge of the history and restoration of this beautiful place. The Heritage Garden is in development, and we will see first-hand the progress of this worthy project.
