The long-shuttered Ormsby House casino hotel in Carson City, Nevada is likely to reopen under a new owner. Just two days before the 20th anniversary of its closure, spokesman Kim Fiegehen and Mayor-elect Lori Bagwell announced that the iconic property is in escrow with a new buyer they described only as a as well-established operator. “This is so right,” said Bagwell. “We see somebody who wants to invest in Carson City, somebody who loves the history. They’re excited to be coming to Carson City.” The casino, opened in 1972 by former Nevada Governor Paul Laxalt, went through a succession of owners before closing on October 30, 2000.
