Facts

  • The capitol's cupola also serves as an observation deck providing the highest, man-made view in the City of Carson.
  • Up until 1937, all of the branches of government for the State of Nevada were present in this building. That year, the Nevada Supreme Court moved to its own building, and then the Nevada State Legislature to its own building in 1971.
  • Before the old dome was removed in 1978, and the replacement finished in 1980, the capitol actually stood 120 feet to the top of the dome, and 155 feet to the top of the flagpole.
  • An annex was added to the capitol in 1906, and the north and south wings were finished in 1914.
  • For many years it was believed that the dome of the capitol was silver-plated. Upon its removal in 1978, it was found to be tin-plated.
