Did you know Lone Mountain Cemetery’s oldest burial on record is from 1856 and six of the first twelve Governors are laid to rest there as well. Politicians, 50+ Civil War Veterans, Mark Twain’s niece and Zachary Wilcox “The Crown Prince of The Whiskerinos” are just some of the interesting residents that have called Carson City home. Carson City Parks and Rec. is happy to announce that we will be giving another Historical Tour of the cemetery on Friday, October 11th at 10am. Space will be limited to the first 25 people to sign up and we may potentially give a second tour later in the month if there’s enough interest. The tour is approx. a one mile walk and takes about 2 hours. Walking or hiking shoes and a water bottle are suggested. We will meet at the West gate on Beverly Drive. Cost is a $10 donation to Lone Mountain Cemetery with all proceeds going towards maintenance and historical preservation. Tickets can be purchased HERE
