Nostalgic Trip to the Lyon County Museum in Yerington, Nevada

“The Museum is the end result of Yerington’s 9-day Bicentennial Celebration in 1976. Funds accumulated during the celebration were dedicated to the formation of a museum. Subsequently the (Seventh Day Adventist) church building at 215 South Main Street and the adjacent lot were acquired for museum purposes.” ~ Museum brochure.

The Museum is open for viewing and tours on Fridays and Saturdays from 1-4pm when volunteer docents are available. (Volunteers are gratefully welcome!)




   Hi Leah,
      Even though I have been to the museum often over the years, even volunteering with Alvin Matheus and giving tours, I loved the online crisp, clear photos that you showed on The Pizenswitchtimes.com for the December 20,2021 issue.   It is a very special presentation of our local museum!   Thanks Again.
June Matheus, long time 60 year Yerington Resident.
