The Historic Bowers Mansion is located within Bowers Mansion Regional Park at 4005 Old U.S. 395 North, North Washoe Valley. Tour back in time to Nevada's Heyday and see how Comstock millionaires Eilley and Sandy Bowers lived the posh life in Washoe Valley. Picnic, swim and play on the grounds as every generation of visitors have done since the Victorian era.
