Quincy, Plumas County, PO and County seat, is pleasantly situated in a large and fertile valley near the dividing ridge of the Sierra Nevada, at an altitude of about four thousand feet, and is reached by stage from Oroville, sixty-five miles distant.

The American Valley, in which the town is situated, contains about five thousand acres of very fertile land, producing cereals, vegetables, and fruit, and constituting an important resource of the place as well as a singular and attractive feature in the scenery, being surrounded by high mountains, clothed with a dense forest of pines and covered with snow more than half of the year. Spanish Creek, a tributary of the East Branch of the North Fork of Feather River, runs through the valley.

Several productive mining towns are in the vicinity, of which Quincy is the trading center. The locality is most healthy and the climate invigorating, the cold never being severe nor the snow in the valley deep, notwithstanding the high altitude.

The Plumas National is published weekly, and earnestly advocates the development of the great resources of the section.
