Ron Bommarito took over the Genoa Antique Shop in 1969. He focuses on all types of historic objects, but is mainly interested in collecting things that represent the history of the West.

Snowshoe Thomson was the only person to transport mail on a regular basis between the east side of the Sierra Nevada and the foothill mining communities of California.
Built in 1877, the building was sold to Myron Lake in 1879. His toll bridge, the first commercial crossing of the Truckee, provided a name, “Lake’s Crossing,” for the settlement that was to become Reno.
Donner Lake was named after the unfortunate Donner Party, which spent a long and tragic winter near the lake in 1846. A museum on the northeast shore has artifacts from the period.
