Overland Stage

On this day in 1852, Henry Wells and William Fargo launched Wells Fargo. Today, their business remains one of the largest banks in the world, but for many years the company also operated the Overland stage company, which brought goods and people across the country through the latter half of the 19th century. We have several Overland stops in Churchill County, which you can find on our app’s driving tour! More info here: https://www.ccmuseum.org/app/
