Nevada Press Foundation Sells Historic Property
The Nevada Press Foundation announced that it has put up its headquarters building at 102 N. Curry St. in the center of Carson City. The NPF has owned the Rinkel mansion since 2000, when the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation gave charity 501 (c) (3) a grant to purchase and renovate the building. Since then, the organization has occupied a mansion, sharing offices with the Nevada Press Association.
The hotel was built in 1876 as the home of the family of local merchant Matthias Rinkel. It was designed by the School of Fine Arts-educated architect Charles H. Jones and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.
According to an NRHP press release: “The Rinkel Mansion is of National Historic Importance because of its association with Mathias Rinkel, a pioneer of the Carson City merchant, and because it is one of the finest and best-preserved examples of French Victorian architecture preserved in the American West. “.
The building is across the street from the offices of the state attorney general and secretary of state and one block from the Nevada State Capitol, which includes the state capitol and governor’s quarters, the Legislative Building, the Supreme Court, and the State Library. and archives.
In addition to housing the offices of the headquarters of the NPF and the Nevada Press Association, the building also known as the Donald Reynolds Press Center houses the Nevada State Newspapers Hall of Fame, as well as small offices for several private organizations, including Las – Vegas Review Journal and Associated Press.
The Rinkel Mansion is a two-story 3,541 square foot by 0.22 acre structure, with a manicured, fenced yard and private parking. This is how the National Park Service describes the “exquisite Italian home”:
“The foundation is 6 feet high and paved with hewn sandstone. A hexagonal veranda spans the east side of the house. The doors are handcrafted and the panels, window frames and transoms are cut and pinned, requiring only a few nails. Most of the furniture that adorned this building was imported from Europe and delivered around Cape Horn. The foyer and staircase, master bedroom, two living rooms, dining room, kitchen wing and hall are on the ground floor. On the second floor there are four bedrooms, each with a large bay window, and a storage room. The main staircase is cantilever, so no external supports are used. “
In 1941, the mansion was featured in the Paramount Pictures film The Wonderful Andrew, starring William Holden.
Zoning – DT-MU, which allows it to be used for various purposes, including office, retail and residential. NAI Alliance and Chase International are brokers for the joint sale of the building.
