Description

Featuring exhibits on local Native American tribes, the Emigrant Trail, the Pony Express and early Churchill County.

The museum is the repository for Churchill County records from the early 1860s and City of Fallon records from 1906. The collection includes over 30,000 photographic images featuring Native Americans, pioneer families, farms, ranches and the Newlands Project.

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.
