— Erected June 1949 —

In 1851 Col. John Reese, with a little band of eighteen men crossed the great deserts and built the first trading post in Nevada, "Mormon Station". Later came more members of the Mormon Faith who settled and established the town of Genoa. Among these came the first lady settler, Eliza Ann Middaugh Mott, wife of Israel Mott. The first native daughter was Louisa Beatrice Mott.
Under the leadership of Orson Hyde, the community prospered and the area became Carson County, Utah.
Washoe County, Nevada.
