THERE’S NO LAKE ON LAKE STREET
A presentation by James D. Umbach
Have you ever noticed that there is no Mill on Mill Street? Where is the lake on Lake Street? Why is there no stone house anywhere near the Stone House exit on Interstate 80? In this engaging presentation, local author and “road scholar” will explain some of Nevada’s history by its street and exit names. You’ll never see that street sign the same way again!
