Quincy

Plumas County CourthouseWelcome to Quincy, the Plumas County seat, nestled against the western slope of the Sierra Nevada range and tucked at the edge of the lush American Valley. Quincy was recently named one of 2013's "Coolest Small Towns" by Yahoo Travel. 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. This enchanting town features a strong commitment to the arts, with numerous musical and dramatic events being staged at the historic Town Hall Theatre and the West End Theatre, both on Main Street.

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. For more information on the Quincy area, call the Quincy Chamber of Commerce at 530-283-0188.
