Description

An oil-on-canvas mural entitled “The Uncovering of the Comstock Lode” was painted in 1940 by Ejnar Hansen and installed in the lobby of the Lovelock NV post office.  It is still in place today, reminding people of the immense role of the silver boom in the history of Nevada (and, indeed, the United States as a whole).
