Reno at the Crossroads: A University Libraries exhibit honoring 150 years of Reno history

Reno at the Crossroads is on display throughout the Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center. The exhibit explores Reno's colorful evolution from its founding in 1868 to the present through photographs, maps, documents, mass media, and more. Interwoven throughout are firsthand stories from the men and women who have made the Biggest Little City in the World a crossroads of people and ideas for generations.

Visited a while back and really enjoyed it and the history. - now was able to attend today but only briefly. Had to catch my flight out but wanted to stop and say it was great and informative.
