Do you have a collection of Antique Fishing Lures? License Plates? Duck Decoys? Purple Bottles? Retro Salt & Pepper Shakers? Kewpie Dolls? We have created a new showcase to exhibit small collections, and are looking for DCHS members who would like to share their special treasures with us on a short-term basis. If you have a collection you would like to exhibit at the Carson Valley Museum & Cultural Center, please call the office at 775-782-2555.
The Douglas County Historical Society seeks to enrich lives by preserving and collecting local history and making it accessible to our communities and visitors.
DCHS is a private, non-profit corporation. The Society does not receive any funds from the State of Nevada and is not a branch of county government. Douglas County museums depend on private funds for direct support.
The Douglas County Historical Society and its two Museums are a 501-C (3) charity.
