For International Women’s Day, we want to look back on some of the founding mothers of Churchill County, the Peugh sisters. These three Churchill County together in 1862 along with their husbands. (Left to right) Elizabeth married Jackson Ferguson, Eliza married William Harmon, and Sarah Ann married Lem Allen, all of whom became prominent community members in the 1860s and 70s. To learn more about these families, visit our Early Ranching exhibit!
