Welcome to the Stewart Indian School web site. The Stewart Indian School served as the only off-reservation Indian boarding school in Nevada from 1890 through 1980, and its stone buildings are an icon of education and life for many American Indians in the West. In 1985 the school was listed in the National Register of Historic Places as a Historic District and is currently managed by the State of Nevada.

The Stewart Indian School Cultural Center & Museum’s state operating budget has been cut due to the public health crisis and its effect on the state’s economy. If you would like to support our museum with a donation, please make out a check to Stewart Indian School Cultural Center & Museum and mail to 1 Jacobsen Way, Carson City, NV, 89701. We thank you for your support.
