Welcome to the Greenville/Indian Valley area of Plumas County, California
Indian Valley, which includes the communities of Greenville, Taylorsville, Crescent Mills and Canyon Dam, is rich in beauty and history. Surrounded by a stunning mountain backdrop, the valley is dotted with ranches, old barns and grazing cattle.
The most alluring aspect of this verdant meadow is its serenity. Quiet roadways and beautiful vistas make Indian Valley one of the best spots in the county to take a scenic drive, especially during the spring and fall. Indian Valley is known for barn quilts displayed on many of the barns or other unique structures in the valley.
The Maidu Indians were the valley's original inhabitants, and their influence on the region has provided a unique cultural background.
On August 4th, 2021, the Indian Valley was seriously impacted by the Dixie Fire- the largest wildfire in California history. Many of the homes and businesses of Greenville were lost, and the community is now in a time of transition and re-birth. As we go into summer 2022, we will keep you apprised here with all the news you need to know about rebuilding efforts, events, and activities that may be of interest to visitors.
