Enjoy the history of Carson City
Moving to Carson City will have you learning about its abundant history. Once a place where emigrants stayed on their way to California, the discovery of silver in the mountains northeast of the city changed things. The Comstock Lode, as the silver mining area was named, placed Carson City on the map and it has been Nevada’s capital since 1864.
In 1843 John C. Fremont was the first to venture into the area known as Eagle Valley. Led by scout Kit Carson, Fremont named the river in the valley in his honor. The Eagle Station trading post was established in 1851 along the river. In 1858, Abraham Curry bought the Station and began the serious development of the city with the intention of having it as the state capital. At the time it was part of the Utah Territory governed by Salt Lake City.
The city and surrounding area was served by the Virginia & Truckee Railroad that was built to service the Comstock Lode mine to haul supplies, ore, and lumber. It once ran from Reno to Carson City and with two branches went south to Minden and east to Virginia City. In 1950 it was abandoned and most of the railway was removed, however during the 1970s rail enthusiasts rebuilt some of it and today it is privately owned and operates as a heritage railroad out of Virginia City.
