Fuller, an operator of log shelter that provide lodging to those gold-seekers who pass along in Reno going to the gold rush to Washoe. Mr. Myron Lake bought the property and operates the hotel business under the name Lake’s House from 1861 to 1880s. Later, his daughter and son-in-law renamed the place as Riverside. When Harry Gosse acquired the property, he converted the small wooden framed building into an elegant brick hotel. He retained the name Riverside, but it was destroyed by a fire.

The Reno’s most influential man, George Wingfield bought the property and built in a new Riverside Hotel. It was a six story high building designed by architect Frederic De Longchamps in 1927 and the tallest building in Reno at that time. The passage of the divorce law in 1931, the Riverside Hotel has become the famous place and acquired an international reputation as the lodging place of people seeking a divorce in Reno.
