The Nevada County Historical Society is presenting a lecture and slideshow about the “Great Car Race to Tahoe Tavern” and “Local Mines Then and Now” tonight, May 31, at the Railroad Museum in Nevada City at 7:30.

Part of an ongoing monthly series, the lecture will be narrated by Vince Seck and Dave McKeen, who play George Starr of the Empire Mine and Arthur B. Foote of the Northstar Mine, respectively. The presentation about the area’s local mines, “Then and Now,” by Jim Sindt, will follow immediately.
