It features a variety of lifestyles from horse property to vineyards, golf course homes and neighborhoods within a gated community. An early settler was Michael Higgins, an Irish immigrant who came to California in 1852. At first he was a miner, and then in 1860 moved to the southern part of what would become Nevada County. Here he farmed and raised stock, and was owner of a popular hotel. r ra JARDIN DEL RIO (GARDEN OF THE RIVER): At Sierra Knolls (see this page). June–September, Saturday–Sunday, 10:00 am–3:00 pm.
