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 new Cultural Center & Museum features an exhibition about the unique history of the Stewart Indian School, and a research room where researchers and alumni can find archival information about the school’s 90 year history.
