The Virginia & Truckee Railroad Depot of Carson City, Nevada is a historic railroad station that is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places . It is significant for its association with the economically important role of the V&T railroad historically in Carson City following discovery of the Comstock Lode mine in 1859. To a lesser degree, according to its NRHP nomination, the depot building is also significant architecturally "as a well-preserved example of a wood-frame passenger depot procured from a railroad company pattern book within the V&T's former sphere of operation."Take a look at our Carson City trip planner to schedule your visit to Virginia and Truckee Railway and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

The Reno and Gold Hill Depots still exist, as well as the V&T Freight Depot in Virginia City.
