National Register of Historic Places in Carson City
The Brougher Mansion is the only Queen Anne residence in Carson City. It has strong elements of the Queen Anne style in its turret, stone foundation, prominent chimney and rounded porches. High Victorian elements are seen in the cornice detailing. The Greek Revival style is denoted in Greek Ionic columns that support the upper front porch balcony and roof.
Wilson Brougher was a man of great enterprise. He came to Nevada as a penniless wood cutter and died one of the more wealthy men in the state. His wealth was derived from his Tonopah mining claims.
Brougher was marked with integrity and ability, and had a wide favorable acquaintance throughout the state.
