Located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Genoa is a storied town of the American West. It’s still known today for its Old West charm, but has all of the features of a modern community. It lies within the Carson River valley, 42 miles from Reno, with a population of less than 1,000.
While people often come to Genoa to see one of the last living towns of the Old West, many choose to stay for the nature. At an elevation of approximately 4,700 feet, visitors and residents can enjoy stunning mountain views. Mule deer, squirrels, foxes, raccoons, skunks, snakes (venomous and non-venomous), black bears, and several species of birds including quail, mountain blue birds, jays, magpies, crows, Canada Geese, ducks, herons, eagles, hawks, woodpeckers, gulls, sparrows and Barn Swallows are just some of the wildlife that Genoans see on a daily basis.
