Carson City is the capital of the state of Nevada in the United States of America. As of the 2000 census, its population is 52,457. Carson City is now an independent city, not part of any county.
Like many towns in Nevada, Carson City was founded in the boom days of mining -- in the case of Carson City, silver mining. It was the county seat of the former (1861-1969) Ormsby County, and was named for explorer Kit Carson. The largest nearby city is Reno.
