Two $100,000 grants from the State Historic Preservation Office and Commission on Cultural Affairs funded the rehabilitation of the mansion. In addition, the mansion’s spring-fed swimming pool re-opened in early June. The William N. Pennington Foundation donated $150,000 to renovate the Bowers Pool, also closed since 2009.
Bowers Mansion offers a rare glimpse into Nevada life during the 1860s. The mansion was built in 1864 by Comstock millionaires L.S. “Sandy” Bowers and his wife, Allison Oram. Their story reflects the rags-to-riches-to-rags tales so commonly associated with Nevada’s first silver boom. Along with the history, visitors are sure to enjoy the beauty of the mansion’s 16 rooms, each elegantly furnished with Victorian antiques.
