The distinctive history of Quincy is illustrated here in more than 200 vintage photographs gathered by Scott J. Lawson from the extensive collection of the Plumas County Museum Association. In this volume, striking images from Quincy's past showcase local businesses, schools, churches, landmarks, and celebrations, capturing the unique spirit of the area's residents as well as the magnificent land on which they live. Situated among the forests and lakes of northeastern California where the Sierra Nevada and Cascade mountain ranges meet, the town of Quincy is both picturesque and steeped in local history from the Maidu Native Americans who first lived in the American Valley to the flood of people who came in the mid-1800s searching for gold. Quincy was born when Hugh J. Bradley, who helped organize Plumas County in 1854, laid out the town and named it after his home city in Illinois. Now Plumas County's seat of government, Quincy boasts many attractive downtown buildings that have become the focus of the community's historic preservation and restoration efforts.
