Youtube Launch

We are thrilled to announce the Historic Fourth Ward School Museum has created a YouTube Channel. This media resource is intended to assist Nevada 4th and 7th graders in their collective learning of Nevada History, and connect students to the relevance and importance of the Comstock Story. Happily, the museum provides Nevada History educators with quick and accessible video resources that fulfill the State of Nevada’s 4th and 7th-grade history curriculums.  In this, our goal is to maintain and expand the museums’ activities by combining history with arts and science projects.  

Stay tuned for more videos!

Please consider supporting the Historic Fourth Ward School Museum and Archives through donations and / or sponsoring of our videos.
