The Nevada State Prison in Carson City, Nevada, was in continuous operation from 1862 until 2012.

More than 40 executions were carried out here by hanging, firing squad, gas chamber and lethal injection.

In 1871, the Captain of the Guard was attacked while locking the inmates into their cells; twenty-nine inmates participated in this escape, acquiring guns from the armory, shooting the Lieutenant Governor and several guards, killing two people. Most were recaptured; two were hung by a posse, and the ringleader was never found. Convict Lake in Mono County, California, is where the escapees made their last stand.
