November 19th — Twelve Inches from Hell: Archaeology at a Black Rock Desert Stagecoach Station Between 1852 and 1869 — Teaching and Research Assistant and HRPS’ 2014 University of Nevada, Reno scholarship recipient, Laura Sechrist, will present her research results about this emigrant station. Granite Creek Station in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert provided trade goods, rest, and a source of water for emigrants, travelers and stagecoaches after they crossed the alkaline playa. Though emigrant diaries and other written sources provide some information about this station, the archaeology was able to challenge some emigrant accounts, confirm others, and help fill in the details of everyday life at this 19th century trading post, stagecoach station, and military camp.
