Well before there was Reno, people lived here

July 29, 2011 by Stahler

The city of Reno grew up around the transcontinental railroad tracks that traversed the Truckee Meadows. When the tracks were re-routed below street-level, archeologists uncovered a record of five thousand years of human habitation.

Mary Ringhoff and Ed Stoner are archeologists with Western Cultural Resource Management, Inc., and authors of The River and the Railroad: An Archaeological History of Reno (University of Nevada Press), describing the archeological work they did during construction of the trench. Skip Allen Smith and I spoke with them on Dreamwalk, July 28, 2011.
