Nevada State Prison - Images of America - by Jennifer E. Riddle, Sena M. Loyd, Stacy L. Branham & Curt Thomas.
A bloody palm print, footprints of monster men, the nation's first legal lethal gas chamber - all of this and more are at the heart of the Nevada State Prison story. Founded in 1862, before Nevada was 'battle born", the prison is the oldest continuouly operated penal facility in the state. While dutifull and vigilantly serving its penal function, the Nevada State Prison has periodically garnered international attention and amassed a history worthy of study.
