Decorative Benches

Own a piece of downtown… The Main Street program has begun installing decorative four-foot metal benches downtown to accommodate and encourage pedestrians along the main street corridor.

You’ll find these benches at the Record Courier Center, the Historian Inn, Sharkey’s Casino, Heritage Park, the Town Offices, at the Stratton Center, John Scott State Farm Insurance, Ron Cauley’s office, the Overland Restaurant & Pub, the Masons Building, Carson Valley Middle School and the Carson Valley Museum.

These benches can be sponsored by a service group, business, or by an individual/family. Each bench will have a plaque affixed to it, honoring your service club, business or individual/family.
