This week we have two stories about Carson City’s history, one on the town of Empire, which used to sit on the banks of the Carson River where the Empire Ranch golf course is now. Carson City eventually grew and swallowed the town whole.
There’s also a story that’s technically part of the paper’s Business coverage, but it has a fair amount of history so it counts. Nugget has long history in Carson City is the story of the Carson Nugget in downtown Carson, and all the growth it’s gone through over the decades.
Also there’s the story that slipped through my fingers last week, about Kings Canyon, and the history of what used to be the best road up to Lake Tahoe, before Kingsbury and Spooner were built.
