Staff reports

An exhibit of aerial lithographic images of Nevada between 1860 and 1890 is now on display at the Genoa Courthouse Museum.

Lithography was perfected in the 1400’s in Europe. On display in the Genoa exhibit are lithographs of Lake Tahoe, Carson City, Reno and Virginia City.

The exhibit was produced by the staff of the Nevada State Museum and the Nevada State Railroad Museum and is on loan to the Genoa museum.

Other permanent displays at the museum, located across from the Mormon Station State Park in Genoa, include a pony express exhibit, a jail and courtroom, a Snowshoe Thompson exhibit, a parlor, blacksmith display and a post office.

The museum gift shop has a good selection of books on local history, cards, medallions and jewelry.

Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily, and a $2 donation is suggested to museum-goers. The aerial lithographs will be on display until the museum closes for the season Oct. 15. for more information, call 782-4325.
