Avenir Light is a clean and stylish font favored by designers. It's easy on the eyes and a great go to font for titles, paragraphs & more.

The Alpine County museum works to tell the story and preserve the history of Alpine County and its people.  Beginning with the native Washoe, the pioneers in search of mining riches in the 1800’s, the first mining town of Silver Mountain City and Markleeville, the Basque sheepherders, and the establishment of Alpine County and through the present day.  Here you can see the Old Webster School house, Silver Mountain City’s jailhouse, a Basque Oven, blacksmith shop, and much more!
