Fun and inexpensive place to have a family gathering or just pop in when you're walking around Genoa.

This is a small, but very interesting museum and historic park. It is Nevada's first known settlement. The staff were very helpful in answering questions.

The Mormon Station is in the center of Genoa, NV. The grounds are beautiful and the settlement is very small but fun to visit....only takes 15 min to see the entire Park. There are a family of deer that live in the town of Genoa and walk through the park. Very peaceful and fun.

Nice state park with history and nice tour guides if you are lucky may see some deer walking around the park as you are being guided through on your visit. Small fee to enter

This park will not be confused with other more elaborate historic parks but it is an interesting visit and the state has done a good job of creating a nice area.

In the early days Nevada was hardly friendly to get through. Rough terrain. Sparse vegetation and you are either on a hill or getting to one, every time you look around. I love it, and the high desert draws me. Modern man is too soft to have survived what these incredibly durable people put up with and conquered through sheer... More

Stopped in while my wife and I visited Genoa. The place was full of history. To see how the settlers had to struggle across the Nevada desert was very interesting. There is a dollar a person charge to enter. The building itself is very small. It didn't take long to walk through. Lots of history on the walls. A nice... More

This park is of special interest because its location. Genoa, Nevada, is the oldest community in the state. The park is a good place for a picnic lunch or short stroll with a few exhibits of frontier life. Genoa village is an hour's drive from Lake Tahoe, across the street from it's Court House Museum, and less than two miles... More

After walking into Genoa from David Walley's, the lush greenery and shady benches were heavenly. The picnic area stretches back away from the street. We rested and met locals and visitors like us near the entrance of the replicated stockade. Inside were artifacts from pioneers and prospectors. It's a wonderful place for casual history buffs or anyone interested in Nevada's... More

This park is beautifully kept and provides a relaxing place to stroll -- throwing in some history of the area to boot. The park ranger was friendly and it was fun to talk with her.
