Carson City Parks Foundation holds first 2019 Open House
at historic Wungnema House in Mills Park
Sunday, January 27, 2019

Graphic prepared for Jan. 27th Open House

Sunday, January 27, 2019, should be a great day to be out and about, so come to the Foundation for Carson City Parks and Recreation's open house at the Wungnema House, Sunday afternoon from 2-5 p.m. There is no admission fee, and all are welcome.

The Wungnema House is the small stone house located on the east side of Mills Park across from Carson High. It was built by a family of skilled Hopi stonemasons shortly after World War II and served as the family's home until the early 1970s.

Stop by and learn about this remarkable family of Hopi stonemasons; how they came to live in Carson City; their heritage; their work, and continuing legacy. The family was responsible not only for this house, but many other distinctive homes and structures in and around the Carson City area, including a ranch in Washoe Valley and at least one church at Lake Tahoe.

After the family moved from the house in the early 1970s, the Wungnema House fell into disrepair and became subject to on-going vandalism until it was finally rescued by Carson City in the late 1990s, at which time, with a grant from the National Park Service, the city was able to restore the house to serve as a meeting place for small community groups and organizations.

FCCPR Welcome to our site. The Foundation is an umbrella organization created for charitable and educational purposes related to Carson City Parks and Recreation. We assist the Carson City (Nevada) Parks & Recreation Dept. with projects for improvements to the City's parks. Currently we are providing financial guidance and assistance to several non-501(c)(3) organizations that are raising funds to make improvements:

  • Disc Golf Group - This group is raising funds to create three 9-hole disc golf (frisbee golf) courses in the Flint St. area.
  • Headstone Project - This group is raising funds to erect headstones on graves in Lone Mountain Cemetery over graves that are missing headstones.
  • Tennis Club Project - This group is raising funds to maintain tennis facilities in Carson City Parks, particularly Centennial Park.
  • Dog Park Support (no webpage yet).
  • Junior Ranger Program (no webpage yet).

We are looking for other projects where we can be of assistance. If interested, contact David Bugli (Dcbugli@aol.com).

This website is in development. The links should be working in a few days. We are also setting up a Facebook page at http://www.Facebook.com/CCParksFoundation.
