A walk along Main Street, Austin

Summer along Main Street is one of the best times to enjoy the small town atmosphere of Austin. The shopkeepers are friendly and always willing to help visitors find their way around town. A walk through this historic town and visiting its many shops makes for a relaxing and enjoyable experience.

Austin was a very prosperous mining town in the 1800s, so there are a lot of stories hidden within the walls of its buildings. If you travel Highway 50 this summer, make sure to stop and enjoy this quaint Main Street with its numerous historical landmarks. For information about the town and all of its Main Street shops, visit the Chamber of Commerce that is located at the courthouse.

Hi everyone,

I'm doing some research on a book, and one of the players was a man that was born in Austin in 1870. His name was Frank Francis, and he became a famous newspaper editor in Ogden, Utah from 1900-1945 and wrote a nationally syndicated column called News & Views. He grew up in Austin, married Dora Beckett in 1892, served in the State Legislature in 1894, worked on the Nevada Central RR, and was a printer's devil for the Reese River Reveille. I'm trying to nail down a time line, and if you have record resources, I could sure use the help. I've been studying Austin history for about a year now, and find it fascinating! Next year I plan to visit Austin.
Take care!
