The purpose of the Historical Resources Commission (HRC) is to act as the official advisor to the City of Reno on matters relating to the historic preservation of cultural resources and buildings. The Commission recommends to the Council possible uses and funding options for historic buildings, places and sites. The HRC also suggests policy and ordinance changes to the City Council relating to historic building and sites.

Historical Resources Commission Awards

The City of Reno’s Historical Resources Commission is seeking nominations for its annual awards program for outstanding achievements in Historic Preservation. The nomination deadline is Wednesday, April 5, 2017.
Awards are given in six categories. Two categories — Distinguished Service and Advocate — are given to an individual or group. Three categories recognize outstanding work related to the preservation of Residential or Non-Residential properties and Historic Landmarks. The final category honors an outstanding Historical Project, such as a publication, research project, media production, or other initiative.
The Historical Resources Commission first introduced its Historic Preservation Awards in 1997. Previous recipients include The Lake Mansion, Brasserie St. James, the Reno Historical App, the Masonic Lodge/Reno Mercantile Building, the Historic Reno Preservation Society (HRPS), and the Depot.
This year’s recipients will be announced and recognized by the City of Reno in May as part of National Preservation Month.
The nomination form, detailed descriptions of the six categories, and a complete list of past recipients are available. For more information, email Jeff Borchardt at
