Carson City, NV Photos

Carson City, the capital of Nevada, got its start by being on a major route to California & by being a short distance from Virginia City, one of the largest finds of gold & silver in American History. Still a small town, Carson City has several heritage homes & commercial buildings within the shadow of the State Capitol.
