Carson City, Nevada


On Monday morning, we drove to Carson City the Capitol of Nevada.IMG_3645

This historic building was completed in 1871.  In 1974 the building was declared structurally unsound so and extensive renovation took place in 1977 and was completed in 1981.  IMG_3653

On the first floor there is a frieze at the top of the walls.  It is 400 feet long.  There are images of wheat sheaves and bulls’ heads.  It includes twenty one of the state’s prominent minerals as well as the state seal.  IMG_3651

We did stop in at the Governor’s office on the first floor and were each given a Governor’s coin.
