Tenleytown’s Fort Reno Park was once home to Reno City, a thriving African American community. Finding Reno explores the story of Reno City and the daily lives of its residents. The public is invited to participate in the remembrance of the community by investigating historic images from the town and contributing to a conversation about the history and legacy of Reno City.

Neil Flanagan will be giving a tour at 6PM.
