Reno, NV (KRNV & MyNews4.com) – As Nevada’s Sesquicentennial quickly approaches Nevadan’s are pulling out all the stops to honor our statehood.

“This exhibit is the very essence of Nevada Proud,” says Governor Brian Sandoval.

The 36th Star is a forever symbol of Nevada’s statehood on Old Glory and now a historic exhibit at the Nevada Museum of Art.

As the Silver State’s Sesquicentennial nears, Governor Brian Sandoval’s enthusiasm is amplifying, “To be able to have the Nevada Constitution, an original flag that was flown over Ft. Churchill in October 31,
1864, soon to have the emancipation proclamation, the first known photographs ever to have been taken in Nevada. My chest is going to explode, I’m so proud.”

Governor Sandoval is not alone in his passion for Nevada’s 150th birthday. Lt. Governor Brian Krolicki announced today, July 30, 2014 that Nevadans across the state have hosted more than 400 Sesquicentennial events.

The 36th State: Nevada’s Journey from Territory to State will be on display until November 2nd, 2014.
