History

Interest in preserving the history and artifacts of Fallon and Churchill County began in 1964, the year that Nevada celebrated its 100th birthday of statehood. In Fallon, centennial festivities included decorating the windows of Maine Street businesses with artifacts from the area’s past. After the 1964 festivities had ended, community volunteers were determined to establish a permanent repository for local history.
