Building/structure dates: 1852 initial construction
Significance: The Kings Canyon Road is significant at the state level in three closely-related areas. First, the road was opened in 1852 by the first settlers of Carson City in an attempt to divert emigrant traffic through Eagle Valley and up Kings Canyon. In this regard, the Kings Canyon Road is considered significant for its seminal role in the initial development of Eagle Valley before the founding of Carson City. Secondly, between 1863 and 1875, the road was heavily-used as a major freight and stage wagon toll road between Lake Tahoe and the Carson Valley. Finally, between 1914-1915 and 1928, the Kings Canyon Road was part of the national Lincoln Highway system.
