Description
Photograph of an exterior view of the cottage of Orvin Clements in Carson City, Nevada, ca.1935. A small wooden staircase leads to the porch swing on the shaded porch that supports the darkly-colored door of the old-fashioned cottage. Thin columns support the rounded roof of the porch while shingles blanket the roof of the rest of the lightly-colored, wood-paneled cottage. Three rectangular windows can be seen on what appears to be a rounded protrusion on the front wall. Above the tall windows, another set of double windows overlook the fenced ceiling of the protrusion while large trees guard the front of the cottage on either side.
Picture file card reads "The old fashioned cottage once belonged to Orvin Clements, brother of Mark Twain. 'Mark' spent much of his spare time at this place. This was in the 1860's".
