Have you seen the Hallmark movie The Christmas Card? The movie stars Ed Asner, John Newtown and Alice Evans and takes place in Nevada City during the holidays. The Outside Inn has hosted a number of movie fans from near and far over the last 5 years, so I decided it was time to make a locations map and help those who are looking for some of the picturesque spots from the film. To help with the photo mission I brought along Carla Bonetti, of Nevada County Escapes.
Our first stop was 49 Crossing of the South Yuba River. In the film there’s a Veteran’s Memorial at this location, please note that the memorial doesn’t exist in real life, but you can still see the spot where the couple kissed down by the river.
Our next stop was the lumber mill in the film, which is Kubich Lumber Company in Grass Valley. An intriguing site to see, the out of the way mill is an active working mill, please contact them direclty if you’re interested in visiting.
And our last stop was the location of the Christmas Tree lot in the movie, which doesn’t really exist in downtown Nevada City, but you can visit Commercial Street and see the spot (just to the right of this corner). If you’re not familiar with the area please feel free to stop by the Outside Inn for our new map of all of these locations.
