The “Kietzke” name


My old buddy Mike Riley asked what the Kietzke name alludes to on the street; here’s a ditch map showing some old property ownerships in Reno. The major street of course is S. Virginia; the Nevada Stock Farm almost dead-center in the picture was on the s/e corner of S. Virginia and Airport Road (Gentry Way). The Kietzke ranch may be found just above the “19” section number and went to the east to Hubbard Field (Reno airport). Its east boundary line forms the alignment for the present Kietzke Lane.
