The first two photos are of the Nevada City United Methodist Church on the main street of town. A few years ago this church was featured in a made for television movie THE CHRISTMAS CARD staring Ed Asner which was filmed in Nevada City.
The St. Canice Catholic Church is a sweet white wood church. It was built in 1864.
The St. Canice's steple is very tall and is a landmark in Nevada City. It was built across from the Trinity Episopical Church but now the two churches are separated by Highway 80.
Now, we are looking from the front of St. Canice across Hwy 80 to Trinity Episcopal.
This lovely church is the Trinity Episcopal Church in Nevada City. It is located on a street with many historical homes.
It is so sweetly nestled in the trees. The choir loft in this church allows the voices, of the award winning choir, to carry sweet sounds of angels to the ears of the congregation.
We are in Grass Valley. I wish the photo showed the beautiful rose garden on the side of the Catholic Church. Just thinking about the roses brings the sweet smell to my nose!
The original St. Patrick's Catholic Church burned down. This is the re-build. There is a wonderful historic cementary across the street from the church along with St. Joseph's Cultural Center. That is where Stacy~Golden Bird Knits~and I witnessed the engagement. Also, where she took those wonderful photos of the playful nuns.
I love the cross on top of the Grass Valley United Methodist Church. The fun "popcorn" blossoms look so happy on the flowering fruit tree in the church yard.
This lovely unpainted wood church in Grass Valley is the Emmanual Episcopal Church built in 1855. The stained glass windows are beautiful. The church is surrounded by a wonderfully maintained garden.
So, I hope you have enjoyed this little tour of some of the historic chruches in the Nevada City/Grass Valley area of California.
