Miners Foundry Cultural Center Opened in 1855 to repair and replace machinery used in the mining camps, Miners Foundry has an interesting history (page 37). In the 1870s and 80s, Lester Pelton developed and manufactured his revolutionary water wheel at the foundry (page 129). After the turn of the century, everything from ore cars to the Wee Willie juicer and parts for Hoover Dam were produced. Located on Spring Street, Miners Foundry Cultural Center was first used for a performing arts venue in the 1970s. Today, it hosts hundreds of yearly events including concerts, theatre productions and communi- ty fund raisers. The foundry is the site for events such as the Nevada City Dance Festival, the Psychic Fair, Fright Night and the bi-annual Nevada City Craft Fair.
