Rough and Ready, Nevada County, PO 8 miles southwest of Nevada, on the stage road from Marysville to Nevada, is a mountain town depending on both mining and agriculture for its trade.

The locality was settled upon by the overland emigration of 1849, who found gold in great profusion in the ravines and flats of the neighborhood. Fortunes of from ten to fifty thousand dollars were made by single individuals in the first season of the discovery, and such wealth drew a large population, making this for a year or more the most populous town in that region. The diggings being shallow and the miners numerous, the richest portion was soon worked out and the flush times were over. Considerable gold washing is still carried on in the vicinity, and developments are making in quartz mining, auriferous veins being numerous. The climate is very pleasant and healthy.

Although snow sometimes falls, the weather is never so cold as to prevent the profitable cultivation of the orange, lime, pomegranate and other semi-tropical fruit. Much of the soil of the township is very fertile, and is successfully cultivated.
