Located at North Division and Spear Streets, Carson City.

Orion Clemens' Home

Orion Clemens, secretary to Territorial Governor James W. Nye, lived in this house with his wife, "Mollie," from 1864 to 1866. His brother, Samuel, a reporter for the Territorial Enterprise, who later became famous as "Mark Twain," stayed here periodically in 1864.

Notes on this marker:

The smallest marker I've seen, it's in the front yard. This house is also on the Ghost Walk and Wild West Tour that Carson puts on each year.
