A treasure trove of Nevada history inside an 1865 Schoolhouse
The Dayton Grammar School (1865), now the Dayton Museum, was built in 1865 and is the oldest school structure in Nevada still located at its original site. The museum is operated by the Historical Society of Dayton Valley.
Shady Lane at Logan
Old Town Dayton
The museum is currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our normal hours are Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm and Sunday from 1 pm to 4 pm. Soon we will also have a museum in the historic St. Ann’s Chapel in Old Town. We are always happy to make appointments to open the museum for tours and special visits.
In May, in celebration of Nevada Historic Preservation and Archaeological Awareness month, the museum is also open weekdays from 11 am to 3 pm.
