Tennant, Laura

Laura Tennant
Newspaper Columnist & Historian

The daughter of a poor Silver City miner, Laura has become the most influential person in Dayton in the last 50 years. While raising six children she helped found the Historical Society of Dayton Valley, educated herself to become a newspaper editor, put Dayton “on the map” as Nevada’s first settlement, and published the first book about Dayton since 1922.
