Charter of Freedom Monuments Planned for Carson City Court House Plaza
The Carson City Board of Supervisors recently approved for the City to accept a gift from Foundation Forward, Inc. to install a Charters of Freedom Monument. The Charters of Freedom Monument contains original sized replicas of The Declaration of Independence, The United States Constitution, and the Bill of Rights similar to the display of the original founding document in the Rotunda of the National Archives in Washington, DC.
The City and Foundation Forward will place the monuments in front of the Carson City Court House in the plaza area. Next, Foundation Forward will work with a community board of advisors that the City has selected to assist them in community support and awareness, identifying potential donors and identifying potential corporate sponsorships. Once funding has been achieved, Foundation Forward will complete the construction of the monuments and have a patriotic ceremony of dedication for the citizens of the city. Construction is anticipated for the spring/summer of 2018.
