A trilogy of new Carsonpedia articles today. These articles tend to come in clusters, as one subject can spawn several others. Today the topic is Treadway’s Park, which was written about in the Nevada Appeal a couple of weeks ago.
Treadway’s Park was one of the earliest parks and picnic grounds in Carson City. It was actually the private ranch of Aaron Treadway, but he let people come in to enjoy what he had built.
