Reno
by Guy Clifton




Overview -
Reno has always been a small town where big things happen. Long before it adopted the slogan The Biggest Little City in the World, Reno was visited by presidents, the nation s elite, and those drawn to the city s wide-open, live-and-let live attitude. The Fight of the Century, between heavyweight boxers Jack Johnson and Jim Jeffries brought Reno worldwide attention in 1910, and the legalization of gambling and liberalization of divorce laws in 1931 made the city a national destination. At the same time, Reno never lost its small-town feel, with generations of families and scores of familiar faces building long-standing businesses and instilling a sense of civic pride."
