I’m History

A few months ago, I was asked by the Nevada County Historical Society to record some of my past experiences growing up in Grass Valley. We met up at the Northstar Powerhouse Museum where I was interviewed by Bob Moore. Yesterday, Society Prez Daniel Ketcham emailed the following Youtube link to me, so here it is. Just proves if you live long enough, we all become history…

    Good Interview Bob!

    • PeteK says:

      Two questions from me for you: when you walked the back trail up to GV high school on which is now the freeway, were there any remnants of the Golden Center Mine left? And Second, in your strip, Is Henry Hackett a fictional character or based on a friend of yours?

      • RL Crabb says:

        Yo Pete…The Golden Center was a ways up the street from our house, closer to town. Yes, most of the infrastructure was still there, and a mountain of tailings that were used in the freeway roadbed. The land across the creek from us was mostly trees and brush except for a dirt (actually sand) road that ran paralell to the creek.
        As for Henry, he’s a composite of every old codger I ever knew around here (but don’t tell him that.)

    Yeah, that was good! I love hearing about the history of our area, as well as the personal relationships. Quite dapper too.

      “I’m just horny… I mean I’m looking for some horny toads. Yeah, that’s what I’m doing.”

      Uh-huh. I can’t believe you actually used that line…

    Bob! Your way with words is fun. I loved the story about your trip to the coast. I enjoy your insight on history and knowledge of the area.
