Historic Johnsville Days set for July 20 and 21

Feather Publishing

  The Johnsville Historical Society will hold its annual Historic Johnsville Days on July 20 and 21 at Old St. John’s Church on Arastra Street. The event coincides with Plumas- Eureka State Park’s Gold Discovery Days.

  This year the society is holding an old-fashioned bake sale Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

  The society will also be selling handcrafted Christmas ornaments made by local Johnsville residents.

  A guided architectural walk through Johnsville on Sunday at 10 a.m. will show viewers the remaining historic buildings from the mining era.      Accompanying the event will be an art exhibit at Old St. John’s Church. Linoleum block works depicting Johnsville’s historic houses created by local artist David Daun will be hung for viewing.

  During the two-day event, the society’s museum inside the Old St. John’s Church will feature an interpretation of a Johnsville kitchen from the mining era circa 1890 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.

  A horse-drawn wagon will be available to shuttle participants between the state park museum and Old St. John’s Church. The wagon rides cost $1 and will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday. Contact the state park at 836-2380 or plumas-eureka.org for more information on Gold Discovery Days.


Piano concert

  The Johnsville Historical Society announces a Sunday concert featuring Plumas County’s own piano prodigy, Sylvia Wood, at 2 p.m. in the church.

  Wood has been playing the piano since she was 4 years old. Now age 12, she composes her own music, much of which she will be playing at her performance.

  Artist David Daun said the Johnsville Historical Society is very fortunate to have this gifted young musician perform for them.

  Tickets for the July 21 concert cost $20. Proceeds will benefit the nonprofit Johnsville Historical Society.

  Tickets are available at Epilog Books in Quincy, Eco Centric in Graeagle or by calling the Johnsville Historical Society at 836-0102. Early purchase of tickets is recommended, as seating will be limited.
