A stroll through Reno’s most treasured historic neighborhood. Many of early Reno’s prominent families built generous homes on this once treeless bluff overlooking the Truckee River with panoramic views of Peavine Mountain and the Sierra. Take in the beauty and charm of this coveted neighborhood, largely developed by U.S. Senator Francis Newlands. Walk to the oldest home on the bluff, built by Newlands in 1887. Meet on the sidewalk at the McCarran Mansion, 401 Court Street. Tour guide: Pat Cantwell.
