History of Carson City,
County, Nevada
And Logo

On October 31, 1864, Nevada became the 36th State of the Union.
This was the time of the Civil War and thus the state motto of "Battle Born".

Carson City was founded in 1858 and is named after the famed frontiersman Christopher Kit Carson.
Prior to 1969, Carson City was a part of Ormsby County
. In 1969 Ormsby County was merged into Carson City to consolidate government services. Carson City is a consolidated municipality.

The original Carson City settlement was known as "Eagle Station" after the initial trading post, which sported an eagle killed by the original settlers. Carson City was officially established in 1858, seven years after the first white settler moved into Eagle Valley. Newly arrived settler Abraham Curry bought the Eagle Station and Ranch in 1858 (with several business partners), established the town of Carson City, and had it surveyed and platted, including a 10-acre parcel for a capitol. Curry named his townsite Carson City, after the nearby Carson River and Kit Carson. The boom of the Comstock Mining District, beginning in 1859, brought hundreds and then thousands of settlers into the area.

There are now nine state capitals with smaller populations than Carson City, and in fact, with its area of 143.5 square miles, Carson City can now advertise itself as one of the largest state capitals in America. More on history of Carson City!
