Locking in history in Carson City

Ashley Hogan of Dayton, Nevada’s 2015 History Teacher of the Year, toured the old Nevada State Prison on Wednesday with her husband, Kelly, also a history teacher, courtesy of the Nevada State Prison Preservation Society.

“What better place to learn about early American and Nevada history than from a place that predated statehood by two years as did NSP,” said Tom Porada, a Society board member.

Ashley, who was surprised how much she learned about history in her own back yard, said the tour could help older students better appreciate the scope of what can be found within the walls of NSP.

NSPPS is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of NSP and can be reached at 775-297-0240, through its website at http://www.nspps.org or via email at info@nspps.org. Group tours will be considered.
