Description:
Reminders of our past, such as buildings and archeological sites, are found throughout the state of Nevada. They represent the contributions made by early Nevadans to the State's culture. By studying the past, understanding its spirit, and preserving its message, we have an opportunity to understand our present-day culture and institutions. The Historic Marker Program was initiated by the State Legislature in 1967 to bring the State's heritage to the public's attention with on-site markers.
