- This site was first established in 1851 as a trading post for pioneers traveling westward to the gold rush at Sutter's Mill in California. It was the first settlement in Nevada. There is a museum and stockade with exhibits that tell an interesting story. The museum hosts a large display of baskets and pottery. Antique machines and tools are on display along with a pictorial history of the area. Outside of the museum, you will find a delightful picnic area with tables and barbecue grills. Admission is free, however, donations are accepted.
