Stagecoach is an unincorporated community and census-designated place (CDP) in Lyon County, Nevada, United States, located east of Reno.[1] Its name is likely derived from its place as the Overland Stagecoach station at Desert Well. Typically, the mail that was heading towards California was delivered on a steamship through Panama. But in 1857, the Overland mail company was created, and the Desert Well station was a dual stop for both the stagecoach line and the Pony Express.

As of the 2010 census, the population of Stagecoach was 1,874.[2]
