Historic Reno Preservation Society presents 1st Tuesdays @ 5:30pm: Alice Ramsey’s Journey presented by Debbie Hinman

In 1909, intrepid 22-year-old Alice Ramsey made history as the first female cross-country motorist, driving a Maxwell DA from New York to San Francisco in 59 days. Coming through Reno in August, she stayed overnight in the Riverside Hotel. Hear about her amazing journey in a time before interstate highways and before most women had even considered learning to drive.

Debbie Hinman is a Reno native and UNR graduate. Active with HRPS since 2004, she is a researcher and writer for HRSP’s quarterly FootPrints publication.

All of our virtual events are shared on Facebook, and are archived on the Library website and YouTube.
