Quincy, CA

Quincy, the Plumas County Seat, is nestled against the western slope of the Sierra Nevada range and tucked in to the edge of the American Valley. 

The largest community in Plumas County, Quincy is located midway between Oroville and Reno on the Feather River National Scenic Byway (State Route 70).  Quincy's Main Street is known for its attractive downtown historic buildings that have been the focus of preservation and restoration. Many of these are featured on a self-guided walking tour that begins at the Plumas County Museum, located behind the county courthouse. 


The four-story courthouse building on Main Street is the county's most dominant and impressive structure. Built in 1921, it features huge marble posts and staircases. Outside, expansive grassy areas with commemorative benches are a favorite location for local events.

Plumas Arts
 is headquartered in Quincy in one of several Main Street galleries that feature changing displays of work by regional artists. The galleries host a series of Friday night "Art Walks" throughout the year and monthly Words and Music events.


Quincy is centrally located and provides quick access to nearly all outdoor activities.  Mountain biking, climbing, fishing, kayaking, rafting, skiing, snowboarding, hiking, camping, and the Bucks Lake Wilderness Area are all within the greater Plumas-Sierra County area.
Quincy also offers an abundance of services and shopping opportunities. Numerous motels, cottages, a bed and breakfast inn and a variety of restaurants are ready to accommodate visitors.  Churches are available for nearly all denominations.

Just west of Quincy is Feather River College, a two-year college set on a hill overlooking the valley. "FRC" is well- known for its outdoor recreation, equine studies and natural resource curricula. A new walking/bike trail connects the college with Gansner Park and Quincy's bike path.

Quincy also is home to the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds, located on the eastern side of Quincy off Highway 70.
