The Historic North Star House - A Cultural 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 (California's first woman architect). Built in the Arts and Crafts style, the home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This home is located on a portion of the former North Star Mine, a 14 acre site of spectacular Gold Country landscape and adjacent to the historic towns of Grass Valley and Nevada City. The North Star House and its historic grounds are now open as a cultural event center for all to enjoy!


The North Star House, a 501c3 non-profit organization, manages the operations and ongoing renovations of the North Star House, located at 12075 Auburn Road, Grass Valley, CA. Through the efforts of a dedicated Board of Directors and volunteer force, the architectural elegance of this Julia Morgan designed, California Craftsman style building and heritage landscaping have been preserved.


The Conservancy is working to re-establish this unique, historic and stunning setting into a premier events center. The Conservancy is committed to maintaining the property for the public by promoting tours, events, educational activities and arts. The Conservancy will continue to fund improvements to preserve this rare historic treasure partnerships with local, regional, and national organizations and stakeholders. We are a location for gatherings like club meetings, family events, classes, weddings, receptions, theatrical performances, musical events, conferences and more......


Please consider the North Star House for your next event, whether it is a meeting, reception, luncheon or wedding. Tours of the historic House and heritage landscaping are available. Visit a remarkable Growers Market every Saturday morning from April to October to pick up your fresh vegetables, fruit, or other items.
