Prosser Creek is a former settlement in Nevada County, California.[1] Prosser Creek is located on the former Central Pacific Railroad, 1 mile (1.6 km) southwest of Boca.[1] The first appearance is on the von Leicht-Hoffmann Tahoe map of 1874. According to Henry T Williams (1876) a man by that name operated a hotel there in the early days.[2]
