Virtual Nevada Historical Society Artown Monday: Before Reno & Sparks
Join us for a speaker series from the Nevada Historical Society!
Before Reno and Sparks: Early Communities in the Truckee Meadows
Early settlers in the Truckee Meadows knew nothing of Reno or Sparks. Instead, they lived in communities like Eastman Mill and Brown's Crossing - villages whose names no longer appear on modern maps. This talk offers a quick look at some of these forgotten places.
Presenter: Betsy Morse- After a career as a National Weather Service meteorologist, Betsy Morse retired and moved to Reno. She has been a volunteer with the Nevada Historical Society for the last decade, where she works in the research library and gives school tours. She loves learning about the history of the state and sharing what she has learned with others. Ms. Wakayama is one of her favorite artifacts at the NHS.
