Location: Downtown Carson City
Directions: At the entrance to the Division of Archives & Records
(Access via Stewart St. Marker located at the entrance to the former Printing Building)
NOTES: *Whew* ... where do we start with this one? According to the SHPO, the directions for  State Printing Building are as follows: "located at 101 S. Fall Street." Let me tell you boys and girls ... "101 S. Fall Street" does not exist. Nope, you will not find this address anywhere by car, map, or archive (trust me, I've tried)! For myself and all marker hunters stumped by this marker's location, let's clear this up once and for all.
| The original Printing Building of Carson City.
For reasons beyond my understanding, the SHPO chose to list this marker's location using specs by the Carson City Road Department dating circa the early 2000s; the road department labels the pathway on the capitol grounds as "S. Fall Street." Here's the problem: "S. Fall Street" is nowhere to be found on any map prior to and after 2001. This is one of those ridiculous cases where the SHPO has NOT done their research in updating marker locations! Once again, allow me to bring you accurate information regarding this marker.
- There are two ways to access this marker with each requiring a walk onto the Capitol plaza.  is located right at the front door of the former Print Building, today's "Division of Archives & Records," which stands directly behind the Capitol. So then, how do we access it? The best way (and easiest) is to access Capitol Plaza from the east. Begin by parking along E. King Street off of Stewart Street, and cross Stewart to access the State Archives Building. Simply walk right through the lobby of the Archives Building to the other side. Right as you exit the glass doors, you will see this building and marker on your left (the photo below). To see the actual printing building, make your way west and thank me later.

Exact description as reads ...
Completed in 1886, the State Printing Building is the second oldest structure built by the State within the Capitol Complex. Architects Morrill J. Curtis and Seymore Pixley, designed the Italianate structure to compliment the older State Capitol (1870). Curtis was responsible for many significant buildings throughout Nevada and the West, including the octagonal library annex to the rear of the State Capitol (1906). Like many important structures in Carson City, this building is constructed of sandstone ashlar quarried at the nearby State Prison and is a significant example of state governmental architecture for the period. From 1886 to 1964, the building housed the offices and presses of the State Printer.

Once again time to play: "Can you spot the marker?"
