Nevada explorer & author visiting Carson City Feb. 26

Stan Paher, who explores Nevada’s ghost towns and desert destinations, will be featured at Nevada State Museum’s Frances Humphrey lecture series from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Feb. 26.

Paher is a native Nevadan, born in downtown Las Vegas in its early heyday. He spent decades exploring the state’s rural treasures and holds thousands of photographs that document its past and evolution. From mining camps to the Atomic Age, he has covered the state on foot and by Jeep, gathering glimpses he shares in his works. Paher’s talk also includes military and ranching history.

Early arrival is recommended as space is limited. Doors open at 6 p.m. The author of “Nevadans: The Spirit of the Silver State,” Paher will be available to sign books following the lecture.

The Frances Humphrey lecture series is held on the fourth Thursday of the month at the museum, 600 N. Carson St. The program is included with regular admission, which is $8 for adults, free for museum members and children 17 and younger.
