A Message from CCHS Pres. Jeff Loflin

Fellow Carsonites!

There was some misinformation in an unofficial communication that went out. My apologies.

After coming together as a community and raising over $20,000, Jackson Foods Inc., who now owns the property and the building, was not able to find an interested party to remove the building. Jackson's Food Inc. was fully supportive of the preservation efforts. They extended the demolition deadline 30 days and worked diligently with a potential candidate and the Society but they were not able to address all the issues in a timely manner.

I'd like to sincerely thank everyone that supported this project including: Jackson's Foods, local businesses, Community Leaders, and most importantly, the residents of Carson City.

The donated funds will be kept in a separate account and used by the Carson City Historical Society for the preservation of historic buildings in Carson City. If you have questions regarding donations, please contact us at

Thank you again for all of the Community Support!
