WestStops is a walk-by exhibition exploring and integrating Elko's past and present with memory-like images of what came before and what is today, seen at the Western Folklife Center (5th & Railroad Streets), the Ormaza Building (4th & Idaho Streets) and other locations.

We offer these visual gifts as part of the Western Folklife Center's creative placemaking efforts in downtown Elko. During the 33rd National Cowboy Poetry Gathering, walking tours with photographers Deon and Trish Reynolds were scheduled for Friday, February 3 from 9:30-10:00am and Saturday, February 4, from 8:30-9:00am.
