Gardnerville in Douglas County, Nevada — The American Mountains (Southwest)
The Surveyor General, in his 1889-90 biennial report, stated that Sheridan was the metropolis of the Carson River West Fork farmers.
The Sheridan House, erstwhile boarding adobe, has been converted to a dwelling. It may be seen across the road. It is all that remains of the “metropolis”.
Moses Job, an irrepressible man, climbed the peak above you, planted the American Flag and with a shout named the peak after himself! You are looking into Job’s Canyon . To the left is Job’s Peak. To its right is Job’s Sister.
