Statehouses Project: Nevada

On the way out to the APA 2012 conference in Los Angeles, I stopped for a day in Nevada. Landing in Reno reminded me a bit of New Mexico, with an enormous mountain range just outside the city. And according to my rowmates on the plane, ski season is definitely not over. I soon saw what they meant, as light snow fell on my drive from Reno to Carson City.

Nevada State Capitol. 4 of 50.

Legislative Building down the street. The Capitol picked a bad decade for public architecture to run out of space.

But the interior is quite nice. Assembly Chamber.

Bonus of these visits: vintage photos of legislators. Here’s Harry Reid in 1973.

 Governor’s Mansion

Still good snow up there

Previous statehouse visit: North Carolina
