The Dayton Grammar School, now the Dayton Museum, was built in 1865 and is the oldest school structure in Nevada still located at its original site.

Our historic Museum is located in Dayton's 1865 schoolhouse and is operated by the
Historical Society of Dayton Valley.
The museum opened for the year on March 4th and 5th. Until November our hours are Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm and Sunday
