House With a History

Bliss Mansion

Episode 101 | 26m 42s

Located in Carson City Built in 1879, it was, for a time, the largest residence in the state. The Victorian house was state of the art for 1897. It took six years to assemble the materials, and a matter of months to actually build the house. Three train-cars full of bricks were needed to build four massive chimneys. The house was the first residence in Carson City to be completely run by gas.
