Historic Charm Attracts
Visitors Year-Round

Historic Genoa, Nevada is nestled at the base of the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada Range, just 25 minutes east of beautiful Lake Tahoe, and one hour south of Reno.

It is home to Mormon Station State Historic Park which commemorates the settlement of the first permanent trading post, established by a group of Mormon traders from Salt Lake City in 1851.

Genoa’s natural beauty, local wildlife, and historic charm still beckon travelers today. It is not unusual to spot mule deer as they come down from the forested area on the west side of Genoa and cross local roads to graze on vegetation or fields along the Carson River Valley to the east of Genoa.

Time for the Candy Dance!
