Crissie Caughlin Family Background:

Photo by: Haley Kirby

Crissie Caughlin Park was named after Crissie Caughlin, of the Caughlin Ranch/Andrews Ranch property. Crissie, originally Crissie Andrews, was born in Washoe City in 1866 to George and Bettie Andrews in Washoe City. 

 

The family moved to Reno in 1874, after the Virginia City mines took a downturn, and purchased land in west Reno, now Mayberry Drive. Her parents ultimately divorced and Crissie was given 40-acres of the ranch property.
