Seen roaming around on Phillips Street were these two chickens.
Phillips Street is one of the shortest in town, running only four blocks from Telegraph to Washington Streets, plus an additional wayward block between King and Musser. But its history has been so forgotten that most people don’t know it’s named after one of the first families of Carson City. Guy Rocha has done an excellent job of digging up the past and revealing who the Phillips family were and why they have a street named after them, short as it may be.
He doesn’t explain the chickens, though.
