Nevada Rock Art Geocaching Historical Markers

Historical Marker #29

Located at "B" Street and Pyramid Way in Sparks, Nevada.

Chinese in Nevada

This honors the heroism and hardihood of the thousands of Chinese who played a major role in the history of Nevada. From across the Pacific the Chinese came to California during the Gold Rush of 1849 and on to the mountains and deserts of this state where they built railroads, cut timber and performed countless humble tasks.
Sizeable Chinese communities grew up here, in Virginia City and other towns. Their contribution to the progress of the state in its first century will be forever remembered by all Nevadans.

Notes on this marker:

I love this marker! Possibly the most unique one in the state. Even if we missed it the first time.
