Significance: Built by James D. Roberts in 1859, this wood frame house was moved on a V&T Railroad flatcar in 1873 from its original Washoe City location. With handsome Gothic Revival detailing and distinctive paired veranda supports seen on many local residences, the Roberts House typifies the modest yet tasteful working-man's home.
