For hundreds of years prior to the
White Man the Washoe and Paiute
Indians used this site as a recreation area and played a type of
ball game here. Later, in the year
1872, the area became the freight
vards of the historic Virginia &
Truckee Railroad. The railroad was
dismantled in the year 1950. The
sandstone for this monument was
quarried at the site of the Nevada
State Prison and was used in building most of Carson City's early state
structures such as the U.S. Mint
Building, the State Capitol, the V&T
roundhouse. The monument stone
came from one of Nevada's first
newspapers, and was donated by the
State of Nevada for this occasion.
