Our first curator and co-founder, John Teeter (born September 14, 1920, died August 4, 2009) served from the first day we were open in 1976 until the last day we were open in 2001 when we had to close the museum for the renovation and restoration project. Before the project was finished, health problems necessitated that John retire. John dedicated much of his life's work to documenting the history of Nevada County. He took dozens of rolls of film, showing the construction and destruction of buildings, crowds at events, and the other parts of our local culture and heritage. All of this to assure the information is passed on to future generations. The Museum's photo books are the legacy of his work and the basis for much of the content on this web site.
