State Printing Building

Nevada State Historical Marker
Carson City
      Constructed in 1885-86, the State Printing Building is the second oldest structure built by the State of Nevada in the Capitol Complex. It was designed in a neo-classical style by Reno architect Morrill J. Curtis to complement the older State Capitol. Like the Capitol, it is constructed of sandstone ashlar quarried at the nearby State Prison. For almost eighty years, the building housed the offices and presses of the State Printer. Since the turn of the century, several state offices have occupied the two floors including the State Fire Marshal, Superintendent of Public Instruction, Division of Buildings and Grounds, and more recently, Nevada Magazine and the Division of Archives and Records.
