The Northstar Mine Powerhouse And Pelton Wheel Museum

The Northstar Mine Powerhouse and Pelton Wheel Museum in Grass Valley, California has the largest Pelton Wheel ever built stored inside.

That Pelton Wheel had been built in the 1800s, as part of the gold mining operations.

The Northstar Powerhouse Mine, like the Empire Mine nearby, was one of the most productive mines during the gold rush era.
