History & History Related Items

Reno history:

The first to come here met Charles Fuller who built a log bridge across the Truckee River in 1859 and charged crossers a toll to cross. Later, in 1861, Myron Lake bought the bridge from Fuller and enhanced the area with a mill, stable and other buildings. Lake's Crossing was the first name for the Reno area. It was a camping place for the travelers passing through. It was in May of 1868 that it became a city when the railway agent held an auction of real estate. There were 100 houses within a month. The actual name came in honor of a Union officer of the Civil War, General Jesse Lee Reno.
