Updated June 17, 2020 - The Historic Fourth Ward School is closed to the public until further notice due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are continuing to monitor the CDC guidance on protective health measures for the safety of our staff, volunteers, and the public. Our priority is to provide a safe environment for all those in our building.

During this time, we invite you to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram as we highlight the remarkable history of the Comstock and the Historic Fourth Ward School.

Our Archives & Research Center continues to be available, via phone or email, for your research inquires and possible collection donations. Should you need to reach us, please call (775) 847-0975 and leave a message. Despite being closed to the public our Board of Directors has been busy vetting numerous talented applicants for the position of Executive Director. We look forward to announcing our new Executive Director in the next few weeks.

Tours must be purchased in advance on our Visit website page.
