This is another update from our visit to the awesome town of Genoa, Nevada. We were quite impressed with this area, there is so much to see and do, we will probably be making many more visits. This update covers the Mormon Station Historic State Monument.
The site of Nevada’s first permanent, non-native settlement, Mormon Station was built in 1851 as a trading post along the Carson Route of the California Trail, providing much-needed supplies to weary travelers crossing the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Today, the park is home to a reconstructed version of the original 1851 trading post that burned down in 1910 and a museum with original pioneer-era artifacts. Part of the museum was closed today, we enjoyed seeing all the old equipment and the beauty of the park. We hope you enjoy the pictures too. Check back later for more from Nevada.
