Jesse Lee Reno Memorial

As you know, we have named 1422 after Jesse Lee Reno in December, 6019 (2014).

We do have a memorial park here in Reno just right down the street from where the first spot in Reno was settled. The Powning Veterans Memorial Park has multiple memorials at the location. This park is mainly dedicated to Veterans of different wars.

**Powning Veterans Memorial Park in Reno pays respects to veterans from all branches of the military. You can find the Powning Veterans Memorial Park on the eastern side of Virginia Street near a variety of small locally owned businesses and the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts.**

Fun fact about Jesse Lee Reno: His son, Jesse W Reno, created the first "inclined elevator" in 1891... Also known as the Escalator.
