Local historian and former Meadow Vista Volunteer of the Year, George Lay is teaming up with former Colfax High School publications instructor Rick Brown in preparing a history photo book of Meadow Vista, Clipper Gap and Christian Valley. Both men are hoping local residents will donate historic photographs and documents for publication.

Photos can be scanned and returned to the owners, or photos can be submitted digitally.

Subjects might include schools, Native Americans, commerce, transportation, celebrations, churches and early families
Lay and Brown are working with Placer County archivist Bryanna Ryan who is helping organize files and research the county’s database. Additionally, Ryan is providing a release form that makes it easy to submit photos and documents, scan them digitally and return the originals to the owners.
