Carson City was founded in 1858 and named after the famous frontiersman, Kit Carson. In 1864, Carson City was designated as Nevada’s state capital. Carson City flourished because of its’ proximity to the silver mines; deemed the Comstock Lode. Tours of the Capital building are very informative regarding the past, and present. The stately silver dome atop the building reflects brilliantly in the sunlight. The 2.5 mile Kit Carson Trail winds through Carson City’s historic Victorian homes district, and bronzed medallions along the route highlight particular points of interest. “All Aboard” the historic 1860’s Virginia & Truckee Railroad for the 16 miles journey between Carson City and Virginia City.
