Display highlights changes of Carson City’s historic sites

The Carriage House of the Foreman-Roberts House, 1207 N. Carson St., is housing a new exhibit highlighting the historic sites of Carson City.

The Carson City Historical Society is offering a new exhibit of nine pen and ink drawings of historic Carson City houses and buildings drawn by Carson High School art students in the early 1990s.

These renditions are accompanied by historic descriptions of the architecture, people and stories of these locations and are on display in the Carriage House of the Foreman-Roberts House, 1207 N. Carson St.

In conjunction with the new exhibit, Jeb Block, a Carson City native and local historian, will present a program entitled "The History of Carson City in Pictures, Then and Now," a photographic tale of Carson City through the years showing changes of many iconic buildings in Carson City. He will highlight the exhibit buildings as well as other well-known city locations.

Block's presentation, at 2 p.m. Sept. 23 in the Carriage House, is open to the public for $5 per person. Attendance by Society members is free.

Seating is limited and light refreshments will be served. A brief member meeting will be included in the program.
