It isn’t every day that you see a historical marker that commemorates local prostitutes. There’s one in Nevada City, though. It’s a small, hidden tribute to the city’s past as a wild gold rush town.
The plaque honoring the “ladies of the evening” is set just out of sight along a fence lining a hotel parking lot. It’s one of the many obscure, overlooked markers erected throughout the American west by the Ancient and Honorable Order of E Clampus Vitus (ECV).
