Churchill County

Churchill County was established in 1861 and named after Fort Churchill (which is now in Lyon County), which was named after General Sylvester Churchill, a Mexican-American War hero who was Inspector General of the U.S. Army in 1861. Churchill County was not organized until 1864, and its county seats were Bucklands (1861–64) which is now in Lyon County, La Plata (1864–68), Stillwater (1868–1904) and Fallon (1904–present). In the 19th century there were several attempts to eliminate Churchill County because of its small population, but Assemblyman Lemuel Allen was able to stop it on all occasions including convincing the Governor to veto the bill after it had been passed by both houses in 1875.

William Morris Stewart – Nevada founding father

William Morris Stewart had a lengthy and remarkable career. Extraordinarily capable and articulate, he was the most visible of nineteenth century Nevada senators. He was a skilled politician. Never beloved, he was respected for his intelligence and mastery of detail, and feared for his often ruthless determination and occasional lack of scruples in attaining his desired ends. His interests focused on national as well as local issues, and he fit in quite comfortably with the venal culture of his times.

It has been a combination of rain and snow in the first weeks of 2017, with the Truckee overflowing its banks and lots of snow in the hills.

JCB 1864 Donates Plaque to Amtrak Depot Building

E Clampus Vitus (Clampers) donated yesterday a large, heavy plaque to commemorate the historical significance of the train depot downtown.

The plaque was presented to the Reno City Council to recognize a slice of Reno’s history.

The inscription reads:

“The railway reached Reno in June and shortly afterwards the original station was replaced by the much grander wood framed Depot Hotel. This two story building had the best rooms and restaurant in early Reno.”

The plaque is inscribed with the date June 26, 6020, which is 4005 years from 2015, an addition similar to what Masons do.
