Description

The new Ormsby House was opened in 1972 at the corner of Fifth and Carson Streets. In its early days there was still parking on the north side of the building. The casino was expanded all the way to Fifth Street a few years later. The 10-story hotel was, and still is, the tallest building in Carson City. The Ormsby House sign on the roof glowed red at night and could be seen from all over the valley. It closed in 2000 and has been under renovation/for sale ever since.
