Carson City, the capital of Nevada, is an independent city named after the mountain man Kit Carson. Nicknamed “The Battle Born State,” which is the official slogan of the state of Nevada, the state was admitted to the union during the Civil War in 1864. The Carson City U.S. Mint withdrew its formal mint status in 1899 as a result of the drastic decline in mining. It was sold to the state in 1939 for $10,000. The Mint currently serves as the Nevada State Museum.
With a population of more than 55,000, most of its citizens live in Eagle Valley, on the eastern edge of the Carson Range branch of the Sierra Nevada. Carson City is approximately 30 south of Reno. Before 1969, Carson City was also the county seat of Ormsby County which was later abolished and its territory was merged with Carson City.
