In 1995, Nevada State Bank opened our first Elko branch. We now have 50 branches in 20 urban and rural communities across Nevada, and over the years we’ve maintained a tradition of unsurpassed customer service and community involvement. Nevada State Bank colleagues donate more than 5,000 hours of volunteer time each year to local non-profit groups and community organizations.

Bronze: J.M. Capriola Co.

J.M. Capriola Co. is a complete western store with the added benefit of custom leather goods and silver engraved items still being produced onsite. The company carries clothing for the entire family, housewares, silver and Native American jewelry, custom engraved silver jewelry, home décor, ropes, working tack, rodeo gear, and the shop is the “Home of the original Garcia Bits and Spurs."

J.M. Capriola Co. is passionate about continuing to preserve the western heritage that has built its business. The decades’ old trademark slogan "Guardians of Tradition" will continue. J.M. Capriolas is dedicated to making quality leather goods, providing excellent customer service and preserving the western way of life.

There is not one single item that J.M. Capriola Co. offers that stands above the rest. The store truly has something for everyone no matter what or who you are shopping for. The experience alone, to walk into the store and step back in time, taking in the sweet aroma of leather and witnessing craftsmanship at its finest. Or maybe the “Old West” museum upstairs may be your way to truly connect with the past.

In 1893, G.S. Garcia moved his business from California to the growing rancher and buckaroo paradise of Elko, Nevada, and opened the G.S. Garcia Harness and Saddle Shop. Immediately, the company was a huge success. Garcia hired apprentice Joe Martin Capriola in 1905. By 1929, Joe Martin opened his own business just a few doors down from the Garcia shop. Business was cohesive for the two companies as G.S. would often send J.M. repairs while G.S. continued to focus on the more intricate and fancy saddle making. Since 1929 J.M. Capriola's has been a cowboy and ranchers headquarter located in the same place: 500 Commercial Street Elko, Nevada.

Not many businesses can boast on the longevity and uniqueness that J.M. Capriola Co. continues to provide. If you have never been in the store “Where the big Red Horse Stands to Greet You”, the staff at J.M. Capriola Co. invites you to take a step back in time and take advantage of a business that provides a huge variety of product. Our staff strives to make your experience excellent!
