National Register of Historic Places in Nevada County, California
The Brickelltown Historic District lies in the center of Truckee along the original transcontinental railroad which was built by Central Pacific Railroad.
The district encompasses the first commercial and residential built areas of Truckee. Because of numerous fires throughout the first fifty years of Truckee's history, the construction dates of the contributing buildings range from 1870 to the late 1920s.
Although most of the buildings are utilitarian commercial structures built of brick, other styles are represented: Italianate, National Folk, Greek Revival, Queen Anne and Craftsman.
The district illustrates the community’s relationship with the railroad and the evolution of its planning, development and architecture between 1870 and 1930. Although many of the contributing buildings lack individual distinction, they contribute to a body of historic architecture that is distinctive and illustrates the appearance of Truckee at the end of the period of historical significance in 1930.

The Brickelltown Historic District occupies an area of one hundred acres. Of the forty-eight buildings in the district, thirty-two are contributing and one building, the Kruger-White House, was previously listed in the National Register.
Brickelltown is named after one of Truckee’s most influential early residents, E. J. Brickell. A founder and part owner of the Truckee Lumber Company, Brickell and his large family owned property and lived in much of the area that is currently known as Brickelltown.
