The Stewart Indian School was an integral part of the Carson City community and for those interested in Native American history, a visit to Stewart is a great way to learn how the Indians were made to assimilate into the white man's culture. The history of the various buildings can be heard on your cell phone.

My husband spotted this amazing campus. It truly is worth seeing. The building materials alone are worth the price of admission (even if there is no admission price). It'll take as little time as 10 minutes to drive through the campus or longer if you'd like to linger.
