Mormon Station State Historic Park
This site was first established in 1851 as a trading post for pioneers traveling westward to the gold rush at Sutter's Mill in California. It was the first settlement in Nevada. There is a museum and stockade with exhibits that tell an interesting story. The museum hosts a large display of baskets and pottery. Antique machines and tools are on display along with a pictorial history of the area. Outside of the museum, you will find a delightful picnic area with tables and barbecue grills. Admission is free, however, donations are accepted.
We recently stopped at Mormon Station State Historic Park in Genoa, NV. We wandered through the museum. The doecents were knowledgable and friendly and interesting.
A group of school children came to visit just after we arrived. They were orderly and the teachers were asking questions from the guides that would be interesting to not only the children but to other visitors.
This is pleasant and enjoyable place to learn history of Genoa and the area around it.
