What is now Reno began as a toll bridge over the Truckee River that was built by Charles W. Fuller to accommodate mining traffic after the 1859 discovery of silver at the nearby Comstock Lode. After a small community grew up around the bridge, Fuller sold the bridge to Myron C. Lake, who continued to develop the village and renamed it “Lake’s Crossing.”

After the Central Pacific Railroad built a station in the town, Lake’s Crossing was renamed Reno after a Union officer killed in the Civil War, Major General Jesse Lee Reno.
