I have been a civil war re-enactor in Northern Nevada for the last 10 years. I research and create 1860’s clothing to wear to events and share with others. Currently, our local museum has a collection of my 1860 reproduction clothing on display, in Yerington at the Lyon County Museum. We set up the display around a throw blanket depicting the state of Nevada in the 1860’s. Four (4) of my gowns and all the accoutrements and undergarments are on display until the end of August. I have heard that the museum is really enjoying the positive comments from the visitors.
The museum is located on Main Street and is open Thursday thru Sunday 1PM – 4 PM.
