Do you find a little bit of history interesting? If so, you’ve come to the right place to glimpse the old town days of Hudson, Nevada. The ghost town site included a train station, freight warehouses, a station master’s home, water tanks, sheep shearing shed, horse and mule pens and possibly a few gravesites. The town of Hudson continued on until the last train departed in 1947.
After the train stopped running, Hele and Ed Spearman purchased the entire town. Hele became a beloved Smith Valley ceramic artist. Several of her pieces are on display in the office. Their picture is included below.
Our next set of photos include the early days in the development of the Resort into an oasis of outdoor fun and recreation. You can see the front gate with little trees, the RV park with three foot high trees, the store, bar, laundry complex when it was a little gazebo and the announcement the Resort sent out when Hudson Way was finally paved in 2001 -2002. There’s also a photo of the Resort’s first brochure from 1983!
Our final gallery features some of our favorite recent photos of amazing sights at Walker River Resort and a couple of drone shots showing the overall oasis. We invite you to visit the Resort, enjoy the large oasis and make this a special place for your family traditions. Give us a call to get started on your next vacation. We look forward to helping you transform your vacation dreams into a reality.
