Carson City Historic District


The Carson City Historic District was created in 1982 by the Carson City Board of Supervisors. Development within the district is overseen by the Historic Resources Commission. The Commission's goal is to have a vibrant historic district that integrates commercial development, private and public properties, and infill development with existing cultural resources.
