Historic Fourth Ward School and Museum Audio Tour


The Fourth Ward School is the last one of its kind still standing in the United States.

The 1876 Second Empire, four-storied state-of-the-art wooden school preserves the real story of life in a booming Old West mining town. Built to accommodate more than 1,000 students, the sixteen classrooms retain original patina, desks, maps and books.

The museum and community cultural center features events and exhibits on alumni, local history, letter press printing, mining and also includes an Archives and Research Center with a collection and record documenting the Comstock history from 1875 to current day.
