Pioneer Park, on our way north from Winnemucca on U.S. 95, is, once again, our picnic stop. Up a steep grassy hill from the picnic tables is a statue. We investigate. It’s not, as we expected, some pioneer, but an angel with a child in her arms.Winnemucca, Nevada: An Angel Mystery The inscription reads, “In memory of our little angels of Humboldt County.”
Perhaps there was an epidemic, or an accident killing several children? There’s no more information. I e-mailed the Winnemucca Convention and Visitors Authority asking about it and received no reply. Meanwhile if you know anything about the Little Angels of Humboldt County, please share it with us!
If I find out more, I’ll post it.
