Come celebrate Nevada County’s newest historical landmark

The Nevada County Historical Landmarks Commission is delighted to invite the public to the unveiling ceremony for Nevada County’s newest landmark — the Hartung House. The ceremony will begin at 10 a.m. on Aug. 8 at 17301 Piper Lane, near the intersection of Pleasant Valley and Bitney Springs roads in Penn Valley. Refreshments will be served.

The Hartung House was for many years the home of Nevada and Emma Hartung, Nevada County pioneers. They acquired the property in 1888 and shortly thereafter built the Victorian house presently on the property. It is believed that Rose’s Corral, one of the earliest commercial establishments in the county, was located on or near the Hartung Property. The 220 acre ranch is presently owned by Peter Brennan, who operates it as an equestrian center.

The Historical Landmarks Commission was created by the Board of Supervisors to identify, recognize and promote the historical resources of Nevada County. Further information can be obtained from the Commission’s website,, or by contacting its Promotion Director Bernie Zimmerman at
