Senior History Projects Sought
Posted: Oct. 26, 2017
Vice President Debbie Lane is encouraging Carson High School (CHS) senior students
to do senior projects on the history of Carson City. She is particularly interested
in their selecting a history project for the Carson City Historical Society. She recently
made the following inquiry to CHS faculty: "Might there be a senior interested
in doing a Carson City history project? There are many interesting historical
stories in this area (we have many ideas!) and we would love to work with a current
senior to produce an exhibit on one of these stories for display at the Hisorical
Society's house museum on N. Carson Street." Debbie further notes that if such a student
were to come forward, she would be willing to mentor him or her with the teacher's
help. So, please, if you have any budding historians in your family or circle or
friends, head them in our direction.
Due to fire damage, the Foreman-Roberts House Museum is closed until further notice. We
are working to rectify this situation. The adjoining Carriage House building is in good
condition, but not generally open to the public while we are involved in clean-up operations.
