Do you own a Historic Property?
The City of Reno contains structures and areas that embody a sense of time and place unique to our Nation, the State of Nevada, or the City of Reno. Many of these commercial and domestic buildings exemplify and reflect cultural values, and economic, political, or architectural history. Thus, these resources are an important part of our built environment and are worthy of preservation. If you think you have a historic property, you should consider nominating it to the Reno City Register of Historic Places. In addition to receiving recognition for your property, you will also be contributing to a sense of Community in Reno.
