NEAT NEVADA NOTES: Winnemucca, seat of Humboldt County, was named for Northern Paiute Chief Winnemucca in 1863. Previously known as Frenchman’s Ford, the frontier community honored the Chief in return for his help during construction of the railroad. Daughter Sarah was portrayed here during a Chautauqua presentation. Nevada’s State Motto: “All For Our Country”.
