If you are in Genoa, don't miss this museum located in historic courthouse. Earnest and enthusiastic docent. Beautiful Washoe baskets. Original courthouse and jail and reconstructed school room would make it interesting for kids. Great place to spend an hour.
Great little museum with loads of interesting photos, artifacts, and stories. Genoa is the oldest town in Nevada, movies were filmed in the area. Great place to spend a weekend.
