Was Moon’s Restaurant once a brothel, a gambling parlor or a speakeasy? Nevada’s KTVN Channel 2 News reporter Jack Sutton posed those questions during an episode of “Nevada Backroads, A Slice of History,” in a January TV segment.

A film crew came to Quincy in early January and interviewed restaurant owner Lisa Kelly and Plumas County Museum director Scott Lawson about the legendary Moon’s establishment.

Bucks Lake has been a mainstay of recreation and hydropower in Plumas County for about 80 years. Before Bucks Dam was built in 1928, the area was known as Bucks Ranch and was used for grazing cattle and horses.

Prior to its ranching days, Bucks Ranch was part of the Maidu summer hunting and gathering grounds. On the west shore of the lake is an area known as Indian Rocks. Many grinding holes exist on top of the large granite rocks there. Acorns, a staple of the Indians’ diet, were ground into meal inside these holes.

Traffic slowed down on Quincy Junction Road on Jan. 16 – 17, as motorists saw a peculiar sight on the side of the road. Biologist Jeff Kidd, with Kidd Biological Co., was hanging on to a rough-legged hawk as a crowd of Plumas County birders looked on.

Kidd came to Quincy as part of an ongoing study on the migrating habits of the rough-legged hawks. Rough-legged hawks migrate to Quincy from the Arctic during the winter months.
