As Nevada continues to celebrate the Silver State's Sesquicentennial in hundreds of ways statewide, a special ceremony was held Oct. 22 marking the University of Nevada, Reno's 140th birthday in the place it all started -- Elko.

Most people probably don't realize the University Preparatory School -- precursor to the University of Nevada -- first opened its doors in Elko to seven students on Oct. 12, 1874. The Nevada State Legislature approved the relocation of the University of Nevada to Reno in 1885, and students were welcomed to classes in Morrill Hall in 1886.
