Inspiration Point provides a great vista to discuss the region’s natural history ranging from Lake Lahontan to the region’s earthquake past which had affects of mining on Diamond Mountain to the local stone quarry.  Of course, let us not forget about the city park movement, though at one time back in the 1940s the city gave consideration to subdivide Inspiration Point for homesites.

  1. TIM,
    IF IT’S IN THE EVENING TWIG AND I SHOULD BE ABLE TO ATTEND. LOOKING FORWARD TO IT!! TAKE CARE!

  2. I have a photo of my dad sitting in exactly the same place in 1946. My family had moved from Minnesota to Westwood .

  3. Afraid it is a bit too far for us to attend in person (we live in MN), sure would like to, though. I spent my pre-school years roaming the hills in an around my home near Inspiration Point (late 40s to 51 or 52). We lived in 2 different houses up the road from the water tanks, near where Harry Harris, the mailman and his wife lived. Many fond memories of that area and the views from the point. It was the lover’s lane of the day back then.
