1. Adaven Building Marker
Inscription. Originally the site of the I.O.O.F. hall built by Baptiste Borda at the turn of the 19th Century. The Adaven Building has been a merchandise store, soda fountain, restaurant, and hotel. The Adaven Building also had a post office for a period of time. With the advent of the automobile "Gasolene" could be purchased here.

While the building has been added to over the years, granite blocks made by the Carson City Penitentiary can still be seen in the structure.

Adaven is "Nevada" spelled backwards.
