The Appeal today has two articles online about Carson City’s early years. Trent Dolan looks at the problems newspapers would have in the early days getting basic supplies. Rolls of paper would have to come over the mountains from Placerville, brought by stagecoach. When it snowed, nobody could get over the mountains so there was no paper. Emergency supplies would be brought by people on foot, carried on their backs.
The other article is a look at Carson City’s Lone Mountain Cemetery, and some of the people that are buried there.
