Carson City's History in Motion
Enhancements to Phase I of the Carson City Freeway
by Mary Fischer - GROW
In 1997 GROW (Gardeners Reclaiming Our Waysides) was formed to landscape the Carson City, NV Freeway. Landscaping Freeways was not something that the Nevada Department of Transportation did. 15 years later, after securing the funding, Phase I of the Carson City Freeway was landscaped with native or naturalized plants as well as Freeway or Public Art. The Art tells the story of Carson City through vignettes at each interchange or gateway. The theme, "Carson City's History in Motion," that is carried out in Phase I will be continued throughout the rest of the Freeway as it is completed. This book illustrated the interpretative signs placed by GROW along the multi-purpose path adjoining the Freeway. Hopefully the short stories will inspire you to learn more of the history of Carson City and other western towns.
Photographing has been a serious hobby most of my life. The excitement of striving to learn and improve continues to capture my interest in the medium.
