Nevada Rock Art Geocaching Historical Markers

Historical Marker #210

Located at Record and 4th Streets in Reno, Nevada.

Nevada-California-Oregon Railroad Depot (1910)

This building was constructed as a passenger depot for the Nevada-California-Oregon Railroad, a narrow-gauge line connecting Reno with northern California and southern Oregon.

It began operations in 1882 as the Nevada and California Railroad. Reno was its headquarters with a roundhouse, repair shops, and a storage yard situated at this location. Northward expansion of the line terminated at Lakeview, Oregon, January, 1912.

In 1917, the Western Pacific Railroad purchased the N.C.O. line from Reno to Herlong, California, and standard gauged it. The depot continued to serve the traveling public until 1937.

Notes on this marker:

Great building, easy to miss the marker itself. Mostly because there's hard to find parking.
