  11. Local History Historian Steven Fry once said, “The future’s in the past.” How can we understand our present or glimpse our future if we cannot understand our past? How can we know who we are if we don't know who we were? This module will focus on the history of Elko and Elko County including a guided walking tour of the historical building and places in Elko with focus on what has made this area what it is today.
