Douglas County is a diverse community which includes three unincorporated towns. The unincorporated towns of Minden, Gardnerville, and Genoa are governed by their own separate elected advisory boards. Minden, the County seat, has a population of almost 3,000 people. With over 8,000 in population, the Minden/Gardnerville town core is reminiscent of Rockwell’s Americana.
