Nevada Appeal at 150: May 12, 1965: Carson Center ground broken at ‘Golden Triangle’

Ground-breaking Ceremonies for the new Carson Center complex at the Stewart Street-Highway 395 South “Y” gave Gov. Grant Sawyer opportunity to participate in some “grass roots” activity as he performed the usual routine in an unusual manner. The ground was broken by a “foot-burner,” or walking plow. The horse, furnished for the occasion by the Smoke Tree Stables, was driven by Francis Carrington, Santa Rosa, Calif., real estate developer, one of the principals in the project.
