Foundation Schedules Second Wungnema Open House
Sunday, Sept. 4, 2016
The Foundation for Carson City Parks & Recreation (FCCPR) is holding an Open House for
the Wungnema House in Mills Park during Labor Day Weekend on Sunday, Sept. 4, 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 and about the Foundation.
The Foundation maintains the historic Wungnema House under a lease from the city. The 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. Pearl raised eight children in this small home. 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 Wungnema's Hopi heritage.
The building, sitting on the eastern edge of Mills Park, is noted for its tranquil setting
and is used six or seven days a week, year round, mostly for the meetings of support groups.
The Foundation, founded in 2015, is a non-profit member-driven 501(c)(3) organization
created for charitable and educational purposes related to parks and recreation in
Carson City. It is dedicated to bringing together members of the Carson City community
to encourage and enable public support for the continuing enhancement of Carson City's
parks and recreational facilities.
FCCPR provides an umbrella under which various organizations and citizens can come
together to explore innovative ways to promote and facilitate their activities. It
assists organizations with similar goals to promote and meet Foundation objectives by acting
in a fiduciary capacity to help manage and protect monies raised by members for their
various stated projects. Currently the Foundation is providing assistance to projects
for the restoration of missing headstones in Lone Mountain Cemetery, for improvements
at the ladies' gun range, for development of a disc golf course on Flint Dr., and for
maintenance and improvements to tennis courts in city parks.
The Foundation welcomes new members and is are interested in individuals who can
assist with fundraising, newsletter, publicity, special events, recruitment, and park
clean up. Annual membership is $25.00. For further information, call David Bugli at
