The A.C. Pratt House

A.C. Pratt, a newspaper publisher, built the house in 1872 for his family. In 1875, He opened the Carson Valley News in the same location, and in November of 1876, A.C. Pratt was elected District Attorney for Douglas County. In 1880, the Carson Valley News was renamed the Genoa Courier which later merged with the Gardnerville Record. Today it is known as The Record-Courier. The Territorial Enterprise, circa 1859, was actually the first printed newspaper in Genoa, but it later moved to Carson City, then Virginia City following the gold and silver strikes on the Comstock. The A.C. Pratt House is home to the Genoa House Inn Bed & Breakfast.
