History comes alive at Mormon Station

Nevada State Parks invites the public to a free living history demonstration on Saturday, June 20, at Mormon Station State Historic Park in Genoa. Beginning at 10 a.m., the Sierra Nevada Mormon Pioneers will demonstrate corn husk doll making, rope making, Dutch oven cooking, tool making, fire starting with flint and steel, and more. Enjoy learning pioneer games with the whole family. Events include the firing of a live cannon and muskets several times throughout the day with the demonstration concluding around 4 p.m.

Plan to spend the day outdoors with family and bring a picnic lunch to enjoy under the shade of the mature trees.

Afterward, visit the log-cabin museum, open Wednesdays through Sundays from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The cost to tour the museum is $1 per adult; children 12 and younger are free.
