I lived at Carson College in the 40's. It was very nostalgic to read about the place I lived for a number of years with Mrs. Salome Jackson at ORCHARD cottage. My husband bought this book through AMAZON as a surprise for me. I wish there had been more written about the 40's.

I was curious about the Carson Valley School after I came across the name in my research for a book I was writing. This history gave me a real depth into its history & gave me the dates of operation I needed.
