Abe Curry already has a street named after him and a statue at the mall in Carson City, but now Abraham Curry, the named 'father of Carson City' by Nevada State Museum, now has a day of his own at the Nevada State Museum. 

According to Nevada State Museum, Curry Served as the first superintendent of the U.S. Branch Mint in Carson City whose location is now known as the Nevada State Museum after the mint closed in 1893.

The U.S. Branch Mint opened in 1870, 150 years ago, and the Nevada State Museum is hosting a number of events recognizing the milestone moments leading up to the sesquicentennial. 

From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on April 20, at the Nevada State Museum there will be 1870-themed tours of the mint, a minting of an Abraham Curry commemorative medallion and even a celebratory cake and punch mixer in honor of Curry's many achievements.
