The Historical Society has a substantial collection of artifacts from the early ranches and farms in Carson Valley and the creation of this outdoor exhibit will make room for the safe and secure presentation of this collection, including providing space for the collection as it grows. In addition we will be giving the history of agriculture in Douglas County an exhibit worthy of its significance.
Plus this exemplifies our mission statement, ‘…to seek to enrich lives by preserving local history and making it accessible to our communities and visitors.’
