Nevada Appeal Sesquicentennial Coverage

Posted Sunday, December 28, 2008 at 10:11 AM

Bill Dolan writes the last article of the year on Carson City’s history, about Carson resident Yee Bong who ran a cafe in Chinatown. And he ends on a note that makes it sound like this feature won’t be coming back next year. He says “This column may appear from time to time as space and interest allows,” but I think we all know that when it comes to covering history, newspapers have precious little of either.

Today the Appeal has an article on the Keeley Institute in Carson City, which was a branch of a nationwide chain that promised to cure alcoholism by injecting mystery chemicals into your body. There’s also a look ahead to next week’s Victorian Christmas Tour, where several west side historic homes open their doors to visitors. The tour is Sunday, Dec. 14 from noon to 5 p.m. Tickets can be had at the Foreman-Roberts House Museum and other locations for $12.

Sue Ballew today brings us the story of Nevada’s seventh governor, Roswell K. Colcord, and the house he lived in, which still stands on Carson’s west side. In the days before the official Governor’s Mansion was built, whatever house the governor was living in became the “Governor’s” “mansion”, so this house held the title for the four years Colcord was in office.
