Genoa began attracting settlers once John Reese built a trading post in the region during the summer of 1851. Due to Reese’s and his group’s relation to the Mormon Church, this became known as the Mormon Station as travelers of the Overland Emigrant Trail passed through. Orson Hyde of the Mormon church arrived at Mormon Station in 1855 to establish a government and develop the town, renaming it Genoa after Christopher Columbus’ birthplace of Genoa, Italy.
Following a fire in 1910, many business owners relocated to nearby Gardnerville and Minden after two blocks of the business district, homes, the station, fort, and hotel burned.

The Genoa Courthouse Museum rests on the west side of Main Street. On the eastern side is Mormon Station State Historic Park, and the Hanging Tree of Genoa stands a half-mile away on Genoa Lane.
