Gardnerville in Douglas County, Nevada — The American Mountains (Southwest)
St. Galls Catholic Church
1475 Highway 395
This building served as the first Catholic Church in Gardnerville, and is an excellent representation of brickwork found in many valley buildings.
Completed in 1919 on land donated by local merchant Sam Imelli, the building was used until 1984 for Catholic services.
In 1984, this building was purchased by Ronald and Lynne Cauley and Michael and Barbara Gibbons, who immediately renovated it for its current use as office space.
St. Galls is currently located on Centerville Lane a short distance from here in a significantly larger facility.
In the upper left corner of the marker is the seal of the Town of Gardnerville, while in the lower right corner is the seal of the US Forest Service, which provided a grant for this marker.
