Genoa was located within the Utah Territory before the Nevada Territory was created in 1861, Genoa was first settled by Mormon pioneers. The settlement originated as a trading post called Mormon Station, which served as a respite for travelers on the California Trail. Orson Hyde changed the name of the community to Genoa, after Genoa, Italy. The original Morman settlers withdrew in 1857 when they were recalled by Brigham Young due to the Utah War.
