by staff

The Genoa Area Antique Show & Sale is scheduled Jan. 16 and 17 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the historic Sierra Nevada Golf Ranch, 2901 Jacks Valley Road, three miles north of Genoa. Admission is $1 per day.

The event will feature dealers from northern Nevada and California and promises something for everyone. Offerings range from very reasonably priced paper items and collectibles to rare books, jewelry, glassware, toys, rugs beautiful Victorian and Primitive furniture and Western items.

Free entertainment will be provided by “Revilla”, a New Age artist who will have CDs and tapes for sale.

The Sierra Nevada Golf Ranch was built on the site of a historic ranch settled in the early 1850s by John James and his family. The championship golf course and ranch-styled clubhouse feature spectacular views of Carson Valley and the Sierra as well as friendly, Western hospitality. The Old West theme is carried out with antique farm and ranch implements scattered about the course and grounds. The clubhouse has been decorated and remodeled with an upscale ranch house look, right down to the creative menu in the restaurant that serves Western-style old fashioned grub like ranch burgers and meat loaf.

The historic ranch has had an exciting history of its own, with several well known and famous owners including Hugh Auchincloss, stepfather of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. William Tyson, another owner, built the Meadow Gold Creamery at the ranch. It was a welcome addition to Carson Valley after the local Windmill Creamery closed. Tyson’s aunt, Pearl Mesta, is believed to have built the large house on the west side of Foothill Road above the ranch. Tyson sold the ranch to Model Dairy and the ranch and Mesta residence to Harvey Gross of Harvey’s Wagon Wheel, now known as Harveys Resort Hotel/Casino.

Saddle up your horse, jump in your buckboard, or if you’re used to the current mode of transportation, drive your car or truck to The Genoa Area Antique Show and Sale at Sierra Nevada Golf Ranch. Purchase an antique or two from one of the many dealers, or play a round of golf, and enjoy a great Western-style lunch. Definitely something for everyone. Several great door prizes will be given away, so you can’t lose!
