This unique collection of Christmas ornaments celebrates the spirit of Downtown Grass Valley through its architecture! A new ornament is released every year in the fall, just in time for the holidays. This fun tradition began in 2004 when Howard Levine and the Downtown Grass Valley Association found an ornament manufacturer that specialized in custom made ornaments. Though the manufacturers have changed throughout the years, the tradition has not. 
    All the ornaments are made of brass, and with the exception of the Ore Cart and the Stamp Mill, the ornaments are colored with enamel, and come in a presentation box. 

The Holbrooke Hotel "...has been made from canvas, wood, soil and stone, burned to the ground, rebuilt, renamed, and gussied up for innumerable guests. It’s seen gambling, gunfights, good times and bad. Fortunes made and pure gold lost. Haunted by rough cowboys and Victorian Madames, their secrets forever safe within the storied walls. Legend tells us even Prohibition didn’t stop the whiskey from being served in the Saloon." 

The Holbrooke Hotel is one of the most iconic buildings in downtown Grass Valley. In fact, it was the first building to be featured in the series of Downtown Grass Valley ornaments. Why repeat history? Because the building has been recently and beautifully restored and "Today, we celebrate the Holbrooke’s compelling past while maintaining a timeless aesthetic that will hold true for decades to come. Design decisions mix classic and modern touches with vintage furniture and fixtures, set against the building’s raw structural elements of brick, wood and stone. Local architects, designers and craftspeople have preserved the charm and history of this treasured property while revitalizing it into the modern day."
