Stewart Indian School Living Legacy

Saving the legacy of the Stewart Indian School as a tribute to Nevada history

The Stewart Indian School was listed in the National Register of Historic Places as a Historic District on September 18, 1985. The site (approximately 110 acres) is currently managed by the State of Nevada. The areas of significance identified in the nomination include architecture, education and American Indian culture. The District is an extremely well preserved example of a U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs rural boarding school and is distinguished by a unique collection of vernacular buildings dating between 1910 and 1944.
