The Nevada State Railroad Museum has been a fixture in Carson City since 1980. Rotary Club of Carson City members will learn about what is housed in the museum, its important role in history and an upcoming celebration at the club’s meeting on Tuesday, June 20 at noon in the Brewery Arts Center’s Grand Ballroom. Railroad buffs and anyone interested in learning more about the museum are welcome to attend.
Museum Director Dan Thielen will talk about its mission, collections, restorations, and a little about the Great Western Steam Up taking place at the museum July 4 weekend.
President of the Friends of the Nevada State Railroad Museum Todd Moore will be on hand to talk about that celebration which commemorates the 150th anniversary of the completion of the Virginia and Truckee Railroad.
“This is going to be a terrific event. We are pulling out all the stops to celebrate the history of the famed V & T Railroad.” Moore said. “The completion of the railroad linked Carson City and Virginia City to the world and is an important part of our history.”
Those interested in attending and learning more about the museum and the upcoming celebration should email carsoncitynvrotary@gmail.com.
