Carson City is a historic city home to over 55,000 residents, located 30 miles south of Reno. It is the state capital of Nevada. Interestingly, the city’s limits extend west across the California/Nevada state line to the middle of Lake Tahoe! Carson City is quickly becoming a bustling political, medical, and manufacturing hub, and is home to many industry leaders. Carson City has a strong Chamber of Commerce and small business community, and its housing communities provide variety and safety.
Carson City prides itself on preserving and celebrating its history, and is touted as the “Best Western Historical Site” by True West magazine. The explorer John C. Fremont first discovered the area, and named the river that flows through Eagle Valley after his scout, Kit Carson. The town was later named Carson City and was a primary hub of the Virginia and Truckee Railroad in the late 1800s. Carson City was always a rancher’s town, visited by Mark Twain and given a pop culture stake by the frequent mentions in the TV western “Bonanza” (set in nearby Virginia City).
