Hammargren Home Open to Celebrate Nevada Day
Hammargren Home Open to Celebrate Nevada Day

It is a home people really have to see to believe, and Saturday it will be open to the public.

Former Lieutenant Governor Dr. Lonnie Hammargren is opening up his house for his 18th annual Nevada Day celebration.

Dr. Hammargren has gathered a unique collection of items in his home and backyard, including an Apollo space capsule and signs from the Las Vegas Strip.  

"You will see the oldest safe in the state of Nevada where all the records were originally kept before the courthouse burned down. You will see an underground mine with real mine paraphernalia and real mine elevators and shafts," Dr. Hammargren said.

People who visit the display won't just get to see some of the most interesting pieces from Nevada's history, but also enjoy live entertainment from a list of impersonators and local bands.

The home is near Tropicana Avenue and Sandhill Road. To see a map, go to nevadadays.org.

Admission is $10 dollars and will be open from noon to 5 p.m. all weekend.
