The Douglass-Frey Ranch in Fallon, Nevada is now on the National Register of Historic Places,  which is administered by the National Park Service.

The ranch is located east of Reno in the Lahontan Valley and is 22 acres in all.

KNPR talked with Jim Bertolini, who is with the State Preservation Office. in Carson City about the significance of the Douglass-Frey Ranch, especially the ranch house, which was designed by Nevada-born architect Frederick J. DeLongchamps.

He designed it in the Prairie style, a type of architecture more common  to the American midwest.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
