The Carson City Historical Society is proud to offer a new exhibit of nine pen and 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, Carson City.

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.

If there are any bylaw changes members want to make, the proposal should be presented to Pres. Debbie Lane by that date since it takes two membership meetings to confirm any bylaws changes. Let her know if you want to propose a change (like sending membership cards to everyone).

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.
