Capitol to celebrate 150 years
The Nevada State Capitol has reopened for tours; this year also marks the building’s 150th anniversary. Gov. Sisolak and other state officials will join with the Nevada State Museum, Carson City, staff to commemorate the event with a flag ceremony, color guard presentation and short talk about the building’s history for a small, invited audience. After the presentation, volunteer museum guides will take scheduled groups on guided tours of the Capitol.
The event will take place from 10-10:40 a.m. Saturday in front of the Capitol.
Gov. Steve Sisolak will share a proclamation honoring the Capitol’s 150th anniversary. Nevada State Treasurer Zach Conine will speak, along with Nevada State Museum, Carson City Director Myron Freedman; author and local historian Ron Roberts, and others.
The Nevada Capitol building, opened in 1871, is a symbol of Nevada pride and history. For more than 50 years, all three branches of the Nevada state government were housed in the Capitol. The Nevada Supreme Court met here until 1937, when it moved into an adjacent building. The Nevada Legislature met here until 1971, when it moved to its current facility just south of the Capitol. Today, the Capitol houses offices for the governor, lieutenant governor and state treasurer, as well as a business office for the secretary of state.
The Capitol also houses “Trailblazing Nevada,” a comprehensive Nevada history exhibit in Battle Born Hall Admission is free, but all visitors must register for a tour in advance by clicking on the link at https://www.carsonnvmuseum.org/.
Members of the public who wish to commemorate the Capitol anniversary may want to purchase a special medallion of the historic building minted on historic Coin Press No. 1 at the nearby Nevada State Museum, Carson City. The museum, 600 N. Carson St., will be minting a limited series medallion bearing an image of the Capitol from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays throughout the summer, or until all 2,000 medallions in this limited series are minted.
