Courthouse Site (1865-1907)

Nevada State Historical Marker
      Dayton was the first seat of Lyon County. When the courthouse burned in 1907, the seat was moved to Yerington. Utilizing the ruins, the townspeople built a much-needed high school. Closed in 1959, it was reactivated as a junior high school in 1972.
