Rose's Corral is a former settlement in Nevada County, California, United States. It was located on the lower San Juan Ridge, between Deer Creek (a tributary of the South Yuba River) and the South Yuba River,[1] about 10 mi (16 km) southwest of Nevada City and Grass Valley.[2] Established during the summer of 1848, it is notable for being the county's first settlement.[3] It is named for a cattle corral built by John Rose, a trader.[4]
