Nevada Rock Art Geocaching Historical Markers

Historical Marker #182

Located on State Route 319 in Panaca, Nevada.

Panaca Ward Chapel

Oldest building in Lincoln County. Constructed in 1867-1868 of adobe from the swamps west of town.

Built as a Mormon chapel, used also as a school and recreation hall, it is typical of the development in small Mormon pioneer communities in the intermountain West during the mid-1800's.

Notes on this marker:

It's a big building, though I think the original chapel is what's shown in the picture.
