Photograph Abraham Curry, Founder of Carson City

April 2017: The emphasis of Foreman-Roberts House Museum is to showcase early history of Carson City and Ormsby County. We are hoping you, your relatives, or your friends may have authenticated items, documents, or whatever that can be exhibited in the house. Please call Gary Cain, President, 775-885-7643, with information or questions on possible historical items available, or come to the next Board meeting on Monday, May 8, 1:30 p.m., in the Carriage House. This is an advance notice, as it will probably be fall before the Museum is ready to be refurnished. Thank you for your consideration of our request.
