The state capitol of Nevada, Carson was named for Kit Carson, mountain man and explorer. A medium sized city of just over 55,000, Carson City is just thirty miles from Reno. Once a hub for the Virginia and Truckee Railroad, today, reconstruction of a portion of the line takes passengers to Virginia City and back. Carson City houses government workers, sales and office workers, and a bevy of professionals. From antique stores in the historic Old Town Area, to raisin toast at local favorite Heidis, Carson City has an old time feel, a solid community, and a burgeoning economy.

Carson City, Nevada once termed itself the smallest state capitol in the U.S., but size never meant it was small in stature. From a capitol building that holds both the governors offices and historic exhibits to rafting on the Carson River, the town is packed with activities, history, and culture. With mild winters and an arid climate, the full range of seasons here is pleasant, and so are the communities.

Railroad Ties

Carson City began as a trading post in the Utah Territory. After gold and silver were discovered in 1859 on the Comstock Lode, nearby, grew in size and population. When Nevada claimed state hood during the Civil War, Carson City was named capitol, and became a bustling commercial hub focused around the railroad. As the rail lines boomed, Chinese immigrants arrived on the scene to help build it. The U.S. Mint had a branch in town, striking silver and gold coins.

However, Carson Citys traffic and population waned when the Southern Pacific Railroad built a line through Donner Pass, north of Carson City. However, in the 1960's Carson City absorbed other town sites and grew once more. By the 1990's Carson had a master plan limiting high rise development and specifying no building near the capitol would stand taller.

A River Runs Through Here

The Carson River flows through the southwestern edge of Carson City. River banks and neighborhood parks offer green space, local sports teams, fishing access, and picnic spots. There are beaches, ponds, and community basketball, tennis, and volley ball. The largest park is Mills Park, fifty one acres of rolling land and recreational facilities. Nearby Heavenly Mountain Resort, Diamond Peak and Mount Rose provide stellar skiing in the winter season.
