Pat Mylan Passes

Word has come that longtime Mustang Bar owner Pat Mylan has died. Arrangements for burial at the Veterans Cemetary in Fernley were being made for Firday, November 27th according to reports from a former resident of the mobile home park. As of this writing, no confirmation of this is available.

Pat owned and operated the Mustang Bar and adjacent Sage Mobile Home Park on the Washoe side in Mustang, located at 11950 Interstate 80 East, Route 1, for several decades. Following some troubles with Washoe County over the water system, he had sold the property to Q&D Construction, who closed the park and bar. He once said he moved to Mustang in the mid-1940s, when it was, "Just dust and sagebrush."

This comes after the recent passings of Jim and Joe Peri, also pioneers and longtime residents of the area. It has been learned that their property, with the exception of the actual Peri Ranch homestead, has been sold to interests owning the Old Bridge brothel property. The brothel has been closed for several months.
