Nevada Appeal: History is found on tombstones of Carson City’s cemeteries.
Originally seven separate cemeteries, Lone Mountain formed into one cemetery in 1971.
Many of the oldest stones are made of sandstone from Abe Curry’s quarries that were located on the site of what is now the Nevada State Prison on Fifth Street, according to the Carson City’s official Web site.
Lone Mountain Cemetery today encompasses sections for the Masons, Oddfellows, Catholics, two Babyland areas, Hebrew, Grand Army of the Republic, veterans, and a city cemetery section that dates back to the territorial days.
