Winnemucca (play /ˌwɪnəˈmʌkə/) is a city in and the county seat of Humboldt County, Nevada, United States.[1] As of the 2010 census, the city had a total population of 7,396 up 3.1 percent from the 2000 Census figure of 7,174. Interstate 80 passes through the city, where it meets U.S. Route 95.

Winnemucca is featured prominently in the novel Revoltingly Young by C.D. Payne, and is also a setting in More Tales of the City by Armistead Maupin.

  Chinatown

In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Winnemucca was the location of a vibrant Chinatown. The Chinese originally came to the area working on the transcontinental Central Pacific Railroad, which reached Winnemucca in 1868. Some remained or returned to settle. Around four hundred Chinese formed a community in the town during the 1890s. Among the prominent buildings was the Joss House on Baud St, a place of worship and celebration that was visited by Sun Yat-Sen, later to become Chinese president, in 1911 on a revolutionary fund raising tour of the US.[2] The Joss House, the last remains of Chinatown, was demolished on 8 March 1955 by Winnemucca City Council.[3][4]

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
