The East Fork Hotel was constructed in 1893 by George and Charley Brown, two brothers who came to Genoa, Nevada with a traveling circus. The Brown Brothers also owned the East Fork Brickyard, providing bricks that were used in many Valley buildings.

The hotel is one of the earliest commercial buildings in Gardnerville. The East Fork advertised, "Excellent accomodations and an excellent livery stable connected" at the turn of the century.

One of three eventual Basque hotels in town, the East Fork provided boarding rooms and meals for Basque shepherds. The two story, 3500 square foot building also was the home for the Borda family who operated the East Fork Hotel in the 1900's.

Damaged by fire that also destroyed the adjoining bar, the East Fork Hotel awaits restoration.

In the upper left corner of the marker is seal of the city of Gardnerville, while in the lower right hand corner is the seal of the US Forest Service.
