Historical Myth a Month
The Historical Myth a Month is a monthly column written by Nevada State Archivist Guy Rocha. Its purpose is to debunk common myths about Nevada, like the Capitol dome being made of silver  and the first elevator west of the Mississippi being in Virginia City . The column is published in the Sierra Sage magazine, and on the Nevada State Library and Archives website.
A couple of myths dealing with Carson City's early history are archived here on Carsonpedia
