New brochure out for Historical Society

Staff Reports

A committee of the Carson Valley Historical Society developed “Discover Carson Valley’s Past,” a new brochure published with help from the Carson Valley Chamber of Commerce and Visitor’s Authority.

The brochure invites the reader to take a journey into the past and discover the story of Carson Valley from early pioneer days to the present.

The history is presented to the public through the society’s two museums, the Carson Valley Museum and Cultural Center in Gardnerville, the former Douglas County High School, and the Genoa Courthouse Museum, which is the oldest courthouse still in use in Nevada.

Billie Jean Rightmire is chairman of the brochure committee.

On the committee are Shirley Giovacchini, director of the Genoa Courthouse Museum, and Cecile Brown, curator for both museums. Suzy Stockdale of Stockdale and Crum Creative Marketing Consultants volunteered a lot of time, Rightmire said, to help with design. Stockdale and Crum produced the brochure, and Jay Aldrich of Minden took the photos.

The brochure was funded by a grant from Douglas County and production was coordinated by the chamber. Distribution of the brochure includes 22,000 in various outlets in California along the Highway 395 corridor, 10,000 at the Carson Valley Chamber office and 20,000 at the various outlets of the historical society.
