New Book Highlights Reno’s Riverwalk District

Local author releases new book featuring collection of vintage images

Feb. 19, 2013 - PRLog -- New to Arcadia Publishing’s popular Images of America series is Reno’s Riverwalk District by local authors Courtney Rhiana and Christopher Ryan Meredith. This pictorial history boasts more than 200 vintage images and provides readers with a unique opportunity to reconnect with the history that shaped their community.

During the mid-1800s, Charles Fuller established the first bridge to cross the Truckee River in Reno. Shortly after, settlers took residence, built a vibrant community, and called the banks of the Truckee River home. From the booming Comstock Lode and the expansion of the Transcontinental Railroad, Reno was a town of growth.

By the mid-1900s, Reno showcased some of the state's most historic structures and had become known as the divorce capital of the country. The area of Reno now recognized as the Riverwalk District faced reckless floods, storms and devastating fires and yet its rich history and culture has prevailed for more than 98 years.

The images in Images of America: Reno's Riverwalk District illustrate the Riverwalk from its early beginnings to what is now a beautiful and exciting attraction of Reno.

Highlights of Reno’s Riverwalk District include:
•   Crossing The Truckee
•   Faith, Education, and Clubs
•   Building a Residence
•   20th-Century Divorce Capital
•   Casinos and Gaming along the Riverwalk
•   Fires and Floods

Available at area bookstores, independent retailers, and online retailers, or through Arcadia Publishing at (888)-313-2665 or online.
