The Fallon Flood

While we’ve had an unusual amount of wet weather this year, so far (knock on wood!) it’s got nothing on 1907! On this day 116 years ago, the Fallon flood started. Though no one was killed, waters took several weeks to recede, and the event re-routed the Carson River!

A black and white image take at the intersection of Maine and Williams, showing the courthouse surrounded by water. Text around the edge reads “Here is a view of the flood. Water was rushing through the rooms of the Hotel Fallon. Flood, 1907”
