Description

By Karen Dustman and Laurie Hickey This self-guided walking tour of the Genoa Cemetery introduces you to some of Carson Valley’s earliest settlers. Read the fascinating true tales of William Cradlebaugh of Cradlebaugh Bridge; “Fiddler” Taylor who fiddled for early dances as far away as Silver Mountain; and tenacious Mamie Brown, a desperate young widow forced to place her own children in an orphanage. From scions of prominent ranching families to early owners of the famous C.O.D. Garage, here are the true stories of people who shaped Carson Valley’s history. Lavishly illustrated with current and period photos.
