About Quincy, California

Quincy started as Gold Rush community in 1858, just outside of Elizabethtown. James H. Bradley, one of the organizers of Plumas County, donated the land at Quincy for establishment of the county seat. He then laid out the town and named it after his ranch located in Quincy, Illinois.   

In 2010, the U.S. census reported the Quincy population as 5,970.

In 2013, Quincy was named #8 on the list of America's Coolest Small Towns, an annual list compiled by Budget Travel based on votes received from the public all over the nation.  Quincy was the only town in California to make the top 10 list.

According to the Budget Travel criteria for the contest, "The town must have a population under 10,000.  It also needs that indescribable something; independent shops, a sense of energy, an epic backyard, culture, delicious coffee.  In other words, cool doesn't necessarily mean quaint: We wanted towns with an edge and a heart."

The contest received over 96,000 votes (combined) and over 2,400 comments in favor of 924 towns across the country.
