Thursday night at the Gold Hill Hotel. Lecture starts at 7 p.m. Dayton was Nevada’s first Chinatown, circa 1858 – 1861. Learn why the Chinese ended up in Nevada, how and where they lived and more. Old newspaper articles have helped tell the story. This is the fascinating story about one of Nevada’s earliest cultures at its best.
