Home of Lola Montez
California State Historic Landmark 292
#292 Lola Montez 1819-1861
Countess of Landsfeld
In her home which occupied this site, Lola's social salons 1853-55 attracted men
of vision whose investments and technology founded Nevada County's gold quartz mining
industry. She brought culture and refinement to this rude mining camp. A mistress of
international intrigue and a feminist before her time, she is one of history's most recognizable
women and a founder of today's cosmetic industry.
248 Mill St, Grass Valley.
