Bernie Zimmerman and Barbara Czerwinski, Reappointed on the Historical Landmarks Commission

Historical Landmarks Commission

District 5 Supervisor Hardy Bullock is pleased to announce Bernie Zimmerman and Barbara Czerwinski's reappointment to the Historical Landmarks Commission. This county commission promotes the general welfare of Nevada County and its citizens through official recognition, recording, marking, preserving, and promoting the historical resources of Nevada County. Bernie and Barbara have now each served on the commission since 2013, serving as Chair and Vice-Chair, respectively, for the past six years.

Bernie and Barbara have contributed significantly to keeping Nevada County’s history alive and preserved for future generations. Barbara has overseen the Truckee Memorial Masonic Arch landmarking, replacing a plaque for the Lake Tahoe Railway and the Truckee Roundhouse, and securing a plaque at Donner State Park for the Pioneer Monument, in recognition of being our first county landmark. In addition, she recently helped secure the McGlashan Butterfly Collection landmarking and is working on getting the Truckee Veterans Memorial Building and Rocking Stone Tower on the National Register of Historic Places.  

Bernie Zimmerman has taken the lead on many Nevada County landmarks, including the Wolf Post Office, Jones Hospital, Columbia Hill Schoolhouse, Ellen Sargent, and Birchville. He is currently is working on recognizing Hirschman's Pond and the contributions of ethnic groups, such as the Chinese railway workers and African American and Jewish pioneers. He organized Local History Week, working with Nevada County School District and the Nevada County Historical Society. He has also written and published, along with David Comstock, the book “Exploring Nevada County” and published a free e-book, “Ghost Towns of Nevada County.”
