Roberts House, theater upgrades make short list for tax funding

Volunteers who run Roberts House are crossing their fingers that their request for money to expand the attraction will be welcomed once more.

Parks and Recreation Commissioners recommended four projects receive Residential Construction Tax Funds.

“We’ve been collecting money for two or three years,” said Fred Stanio, the Carson City Historical Society’s building coordinator.

Roberts House, at 1207 N. Carson St., is owned by the city but run by the society. It could receive $54,000 for its plan to add a two-story, 1,425-square-foot area to the property that will provide more exhibit space and lecture areas.
