Foundation Schedules Wungnema Open House
Sunday, Dec. 18, 2016, 2-5 p.m.
The Foundation for Carson City Parks & Recreation (FCCPR) is holding its last Open House of the year at
the Wungnema House in Mills Park on Sunday,
Dec. 18, 2016, from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. The building is accessible by the Park entrance
on Saliman Road, opposite the high school. Admission to the open house is free.
This will be an opportunity to learn about this historic building, about Indian history
and culture, and about the Foundation.
The Foundation maintains the historic Wungnema House under a lease from the city.
The historic 1000 square-foot Wungnema House was built in 1948 on what was then the
outskirts of Carson City. Burton Wungnema, with the help of his father Earnest Wungnema
and then pregnant wife Pearl, used the stone from his father's fourteen quarries in
Brunswick Canyon to build this home for his family. This home is representative of
the wonderful mason work done in the churches and homes built by Burton and his
father around Lake Tahoe from 1925 to 1955 and elements reflect the Wungnemas' Hopi
heritage. The family's Hopi pride is reflected in certain features of the building,
including the downstairs fireplace with its Hopi Water Clan symbolism, which incorporates
three semicircular stones (representing clouds) with rain falling below and two
lightning bolts above.

gun range near Flint St.

(frisbee golf) courses in the Flint St. area.
