Nevada Experience: Newlands ProjectNevada Experience: Newlands Project:
Francis Newlands (U. S. Senator from Nevada) was on a crusade: change the desert into farming land. He authored the reclamation Act of 1903 which included the Newlands Project. This project diverted water from the Truckee and Carson Rivers to the farmers in Fernley and Fallon. But it did not come without a price.

Nevada Experience: Lincoln HighwayNevada Experience: Lincoln Highway:
The United States was on the move. The West had been opened and the automobile was the rage. But there was no coast-to-coast highway! The Lincoln Highway was to remedy this, but there was no funding, the highway in Nevada and Utah did not connect, and some of the highway was actually sand, rock, and deep mud.
