Reno's Early Meatpacking Industry

Presented by Historic Reno Preservation Society

ZoAnn Campana, Historic Preservation Consultant and HRC Architectural Historian, presents "Reno's Early Meatpacking Industry"

Join us for a discussion of Reno's early meatpacking industry, as illustrated by the rise and fall of the Nevada Packing Company on E. 4th Street.  Founded by Patrick Flanagan as the Nevada Meat Company in 1902, the Nevada Packing Company grew into Nevada's only Federally-inspected packing plant.  More than just a slaughterhouse, the company manufactured butter and ice, distributed beer and liquor, and smoked its own bacon and hams.  Most notably, the company foreshadowed the locavore movement as we know it today, sourcing its animals and other materials from local ranches and farms.
