CARSON CITY–The Nevada Press Foundation this week said it’s selling its headquarters building, the Rinckel Mansion, located at 102 N. Curry Street in Carson City. NPF has owned the building since 2000, when it purchased and renovated it with a donation from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation.

The historic building is listed for $1.3 million.

In addition to housing the NPF, the building has also been home to the Nevada Press Association, the Nevada Newspaper Hall of Fame and small offices for several news organizations in the state.

Built in 1876 for the family of local merchant Mathias Rinckel, the home is more than 3,500 square feet and sits on .22 acres. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975 and described by the National Park Service as a “sophisticated Italianate home.” It features a cantilevered staircase, handmade doors, and panels, window casings and transoms that are morticed and pegged.

According to the NRHP, “The Rinckel Mansion is of state historical significance because of its connection with Mathias Rinckel, a pioneer Carson City merchant, and because it is one of the finest and best-preserved examples of French Victorian architecture remaining in the American West.”

The building is zoned for various uses, including office, retail or residential. For more information about the building or to schedule a tour, contact Andie Wilson of NAI Alliance at 775-721-2980.
