Julia Morgan - North Star House & North Star Mine Museum


Join us as we discover the interesting history of Grass Valley.


Join us as we discover the interesting history of Grass Valley. We will tour The North Star House, which is a 10,000 square-foot home designed in 1905 by the renowned architect Julia Morgan.  Julia Morgan is best known for her work on Hearst Castle. Morgan was also California's first licensed female architect. We will also visit the North Star Mine Museum. North Star Mine was one of the richest gold mines in California history. North Star encompassed over 700 acres of land and contained two main mine shafts, many operational buildings, stamp mills, and was a very active mine property from 1851-1956. Enjoy lunch at Cirino's Restaurant and shopping in town.



Pickup Points

Since pickup times vary from trip to trip, please consult the trip-specific timed itinerary that is sent to you when you book. A detailed description of where each stop is located is also included with those documents. The motorcoach will make stops at all the locations, and upon returning to Sacramento, will drop you off in reverse order.

Day Trips Headed Westbound from Sacramento (SF, Napa, etc) and Eastbound on I-80 (Reno):

  • Citrus Heights at Antelope Rd & Lichen Dr
  • Arden Area

Day Trips Headed Eastbound on the Hwy 50 Corridor (Tahoe, Sierra Foothills):

  • Arden Area
  • Sports Leisure Office at 9812 Old Winery Pl (Near Hwy 50 & Bradshaw)

We do not share specific pickup information on our website, as we have found over the years that other travel groups tend to use our pickup points without our or the property owner's permission, which reflects poorly on our company and hurts our ability to offer convenient pickup points to our clients. Accordingly, we ask that you not suggest our pickup points to other groups you travel with, as "the more the merrier" does not often apply to parking lots. Your understanding is appreciated.
