Situated in Eagle Valley, Carson City is named after Christopher 'Kit' Carson, a mountain man hired by explorer John C Fremont, whose party arrived in the area in 1843. Carson City prospered following the discovery of gold and silver in the nearby Comstock Lode in 1859, and became Nevada's state capital in 1864. However, the city became neglected following the construction of a major railroad through Donner Pass to the north of the city, and its population dwindled to 1,500 in the 1930s.
