Two Nevada schools added to Nevada Register of Historic Places

The historic schoolhouses in the towns of Golconda, in Humboldt County, and Manhattan, in Nye County, have been listed in the Nevada Register of Historic Places. The register is Nevada's official list of cultural resources worthy of preservation.

The Golconda School was constructed in 1888 with a high school addition built in 1929. The building is an unusually well-preserved 19th century wood-frame vernacular school with Second Empire influences.

The Manhattan Schoolhouse was built in 1913.
