The Old Genoa Bar | by Sandie La Nae

Along with celebrating the State’s 150th birthday, I have written a book about Nevada’s Oldest Thirst Parlor, located in Genoa, Nevada, which is celebrating its 160th birthday this year.

On October 26th, 2013, a commemoration ceremony was planned, with the bar’s current owners, (Willy and Cindy Webb) given recognition and acknowledgement for their contributions to Nevada and Genoa.

The Webbs also received several proclamations from many political dignitaries. The decrees were in honor of the Webb’s owning Nevada’s oldest Saloon, for guardianship of a Nevada treasure and being instrumental in fostering historical interest in the Genoa Bar where the “no horses allowed” sign at the front door welcomes all visitors.

Includes the history of ownership of this Historic Northern Nevada business, as well as personal accounts from some bar owners, bartenders and patrons.

And where only hardy life hangs on
to all that it entails... Read More
