Park History:

The Phillip and Annie Callahan Park is so named to honor the parents of the Callahan family who donated 25-acres to make the park possible. The beautiful, peaceful pine trees, variety of park amenities, and access to the Galena Creek Trail make this park a gem. The Nevada Recreation and Parks Society also thought so and granted it an award for design excellence.

 

But the wonder of this park goes back to the earliest days of Nevada’s settlement by ranchers and miners, and booms and busts of the Comstock Lode in nearby Virginia City.
