Museum Closed in Honor of Juneteenth

Today the Churchill County Museum, along with other Churchill County Offices, is closed in honor of our newest federal holiday, Juneteenth.

If you’re unfamiliar with the holiday, which celebrates the end of chattel slavery in the United States, click here to watch a great video put together by a news station in Texas, the state where Juneteenth began, that explains some of the day’s history. (Content Warning: this video contains discussion and imagery of racist violence related to the horrors of slavery.)
