  1. Hello,
    I’m a writer looking for information / maps of the original Kingsbury McDonald toll road. I’m trying to pinpoint exact route in 1861. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Hi James,
      I double checked the DCHS archives and we do not have any documentation confirming the 1861 alignment of the old Kingsbury route. I would recommend two possible sources. First, check the earliest of the USGS Topographic Maps. Second, as the road is now a State Highway, the State of Nevada Highway Department, Right-of-Way Division may have the information you are looking for. If memory serves me correct, the original deed of conveyance was from point to point and contained no actual Metes & Bounds. — DCHS Staff

  2. Do you have the set of ski s that snowshoe Thompson used? Seems I remember them being there but not sure. thanks
