Glendale School House


"A lesson in history"

The town of Glendale preceded Reno as a settlement and was thought to be destined to be the metropolis along the Truckee River. Those dreams were shattered when the town was bypassed by the Central Pacific Railroad and the station was routed to Lakes Crossing in what was soon to be Reno. The first teacher of this little white schoolhouse, E.C. Sessions, taught in his home until this building was constructed in 1864. The cost of the building was $1,446, and to this day it remains a testament to the craftsmanship of the builder, Archie Bryant. Over the years, many early Nevadans were educated at this little schoolhouse, perhaps the most notable was U.S. Senator Patrick A. McCarran. The schoolhouse is open for visiting only by requests made in advance through the Sparks Chamber of Commerce.
