Adopt A Window Shade

Did a member of your family attend the Fourth Ward School? If so, they probably daydreamed looking out of one of the spectacular windows, or peeked behind the window shade when the teacher wasn’t looking.

Even if you have no family connection, please consider sponsoring a replacement window shade.

There are 47 window shades in the Historic Fourth Ward School building.  Of those, 14 are in very poor condition and need to be replaced. The replacement window shades will be manufactured by a company that specializes in reproduction Victorian Era window coverings.

Because each window is 9 feet tall, the window shades will be made with heavy duty rollers and springs that can hold the weight and length of the window shade.

Your donation of $400 will cover the cost of the shade and shipping.  Each sponsored shade will have a brass plaque. Each plaque can be engraved with a name, company or organization, in-memoriam, or with a special date or event.

Help us keep the Historic Fourth Ward School looking spectacular and adopt a window shade today.  Call (775) 847-0975 ext. 1 or email us at Director@FourthWardSchool.org.

The Historic Fourth Ward School foundation has been diligent with the care, restoration and interpretation of this significant building. However, as with any large and historic building extensive projects are the norm and it has been 15 years since our last one. As we expand our programing, school tours, educational exhibits and outreach, the building remains our number one priority. It is our largest and most important artifact.
