ink drawings of historic Carson City houses and buildings drawn by Carson High School
art students in the early 1990s. These wonderful renditions are accompanied by historic
descriptions of the architecture, people and stories of these locations and are on
display in the Carriage House of the Foreman-Roberts House at 1207 N. Carson Street,
In conjunction with this new exhibit, Jed Block, a Carson City native and local
historian, will present a program entitled: The History of Carson City in Pictures,
Then and Now, a photographic tale of Carson City through the years showing "then and now"
depictions of many iconic buildings in Carson City. He will highlight the exhibit
buildings as well as other well-known city locations.
This event will take place on Sunday, September 23, 2018, at 2:00 in the Carriage
House and is open to the public for a donation of $5.00. Attendance by Society members
is free. Seating is limited and light refreshments will be served. A brief member meeting
will be included in the program. If you have questions, please call Debbie Lane at 775-841-4456.

want to propose a change (like sending membership cards to everyone).

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.
