The Carson Box Factory was owned by the Carson & Tahoe Lumber & Fluming Company, and used to create boxes and shingles out of lumber that was harvested from the forests of Lake Tahoe. A spur line of the Virginia and Truckee Railroad ran right by the factory. The railroad right of way later became Stewart Street, and the site of the box factory housed Copeland Lumber for much of the 20th century.
