Geocache Description:

I found that this SHM was untouched by other cachers, so I decided to place one here. First of two that I placed today.

The Stewart Indian School served as an off-reservation boarding school from 1890 through 1980, and its stone buildings are an icon of education and life for many American Indians in the West. After the school closed, the buildings were emptied and many became home to state offices. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is comprised of 83 buildings.

The Stewart Indian School Trail is a self-guided walking tour of the campus with 20 points of interest and audio stories. Using personal cell phones, visitors can access recorded messages from alumni and employees about their personal experiences at the school. The goal of the “Talking” Trail is to preserve the history and memorabilia of the school, which provided education and vocational skills to American Indian youth from Nevada, California, Arizona and New Mexico, representing more than 200 tribes.
