There's No Lake on Lake Street!

Colorful Origins of Street and Place Names in Reno, Sparks, Carson City, and South Shore Lake Tahoe

Have you ever noticed that there is no lake on Lake Street? Or wondered where the Mill on Mill Street is? Or why Long Street in Carson City is so short? Well, then you have come to the right place! In this fun, informative book, you will learn the stories behind the names of streets, parks, schools and other places, in Reno, Sparks, Carson City and South Lake Tahoe. Be ready for a healthy dose of humor interspersed with period news articles to take you back to the early days of Reno, days that would otherwise be forgotten if not for the roads you drive on and places you pass every day.
