It’s easy to imagine Carson Valley a century ago, because this small ranching town has such deep ties to its history. Imagine H.F. Dangberg Junior, son of the town’s founder and the man who organized its first bank, sitting in the new bank building’s penthouse. He looks across the dirt road to the flour mill, then turns to watch the sun go down behind the Sierra Nevadas, and takes a small sip of his drink.
Today, the people who work in this building can enjoy the same view. The mountains haven’t changed, but the road next to the building has become a highway. The flour mill stopped operating over fifty years ago, but it’ll soon be processing grains once again — only this time as a distillery. And the penthouse is no longer part of a bank — it’s now inside one of Nevada’s greenest high–tech buildings.
The transformation of this Nationally Registered Historic Place was carefully overseen by Bently Enterprises, in tandem with some of California and the Silver State’s most talented architects, engineers, and designers. It now serves as the corporate flagship building of Bently Enterprises’ Nevada wing.
