The Historic North Star House – A Cultural Arts Event Center in Grass Valley, CA

The North Star House

A Cultural Arts Event Center for All to Enjoy

The North Star House is a 10,000 square-foot home designed in 1905 by the renowned architect Julia Morgan. Morgan graduated from Ecole Des Beaux-Arts (Paris) in 1903. She was the first woman to be admitted and earn a degree in architecture. Morgan was also California’s first female architect.

Built in the “arts and crafts” style, the North Star House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is located on a portion of the former North Star Mine, a 14-acre site of spectacular Gold Country landscapes.  The North Star House is owned and operated by the North Star Historic Conservancy.

The Conservancy is working to re-establish this unique, historic house and grounds into a premier cultural event center. It is committed to maintaining the property for the public by promoting tours, events, educational activities and the arts.

The Conservancy will continue to fund improvements to preserve this rare historic treasure in partnership with local, regional, and national organizations and stakeholders. The house is a location for gatherings such as family events, classes, weddings, theatrical performances, musical events, and conferences.

The historic towns of Grass Valley and Nevada City are located within a few miles of the home.
