Nevada Capitol Building, Bowers Mansion, King’s Canyon and Stewart Indian School Museum

Episode 509 – Carson City:

Hosts Chris Orr and Dave Santina use the Carson City area as the hub for this trip. They introduce viewers to the Nevada State Capitol Building, where the state’s history is on display in the form of governors’ portraits, the old Assembly Chamber and Supreme Court, plus the Battle Born Room with a fascinating collection of artifacts telling Nevada’s story. Then, Chris and Dave head north to Washoe Valley and Bower’s Mansion to tour the enduring testament to the family who boomed and busted there. On the second day of the trip, they travel west of Carson City to King’s Canyon and hike to a beautiful waterfall and a glorious view of the city. The trip ends on the grounds of the Stewart Indian School, which has a new museum designed to bring visitors the stories from alumni who once lived there.
