Greetings once again from the old west, I’m here today in Carson City Nevada looking at the historic Orion Clemens house. This was the home of the older and at the time more successful brother of Mark Twain, Orion Clemens. Of course, after heimbucking himself pretty badly in politics, Orion went on to a slow decline in life, even as his brother Sam (as Mark Twain) went on to achieve International superstardom. Not too many people are aware that Clemens had a house here in Carson City, or that his brother may have actually used the nom de plume “Mark Twain” for the first time within or very nearby its walls.
