Election Information


Welcome to the City of Grass Valley's Municipal Election webpage.

Town History

It is said that Grass Valley was named by settlers whose cattle had wandered from their campsite on Greenhorn Creek to a "grassy valley" nearby where the grazing was better. Miners panning for gold along Wolf Creek and a major discovery of gold-bearing quartz in 1850 started a boom. The "grassy valley" was an easy place to put up buildings. A store opened and the spot became known as Boston Ravine. For a short time it was called Centerville; then it became Grass Valley.
