About Our Location
RCI is located in historic Carson City, Nevada, the Capital of Nevada. Carson City was founded in 1858 by pioneer Abraham Curry. The city takes its name from the Carson River which early explorer John Fremont named for his scout, frontiersman “Kit” Carson. Following the organization of the Nevada territory in 1861, it became the territorial capital and the county seat. In 1864, President Abraham Lincoln granted statehood to Nevada and Carson City was selected as the state capital. Carson City not only became a seat of local, territorial, and state government, but also grew into a thriving commercial and industrial center after the discovery of the Comstock Lode of gold and silver in nearby Virginia City. Nevada’s first railroad, the Virginia & Truckee, was established to transport ore from the mines to Carson City and on to Reno.
