Municipal Building

  • (Photograph by Julie Nicoletta)

This one-story structure displays a spare modern style typical of buildings of the period in small Nevada towns. Its main mass steps back to two side wings, while engaged vertical piers rise to a slightly stepped parapet. Despite its small size, the building houses a number of city offices, including the water and police departments, the justice clerk, and a courtroom.
