- KurzbeschreibungThis book presents a study of Nevada City, Montana <br>to examine the eligibility potential for a historic <br>district nomination to the National Register of <br>Historic Places (NRHP). Founded in 1863, Nevada City <br>experienced a gold mining heyday from 1863-1869. As <br>easily attainable placers diminished and strikes <br>were reported elsewhere, the town was nearly <br>abandoned. Many of the remaining buildings were <br>demolished, used for firewood, or salvaged by Nevada <br>City''s remaining residents. Senator Charles Bovey <br>began preservation work in 1944 at nearby Virginia <br>City, Montana. In the late 1950s Bovey was asked to <br>remove his "Old Town" exhibit from the Great Falls <br>fairgrounds. He purchased several acres of land <br>containing what remained of Nevada City and began <br>relocating buildings to Nevada City''s vacant lots in <br>1958. The collection of original, relocated, and <br>reconstructed buildings were intended to represent <br>the 1860s-1900 period of Montana s history. In 1997 <br>the State of Montana purchased Bovey''s Nevada City <br>and Virginia City properties and artifacts to <br>continue the preservation and tourist legacy begun <br>in 1944.
