For more than 10,000 years, people have carved out a life here out of the hard, rugged Nevada terrain. From boom to bust, their stories are preserved at the Nevada Historical Society in Reno.
Lives and lifestyles of the region’s native peoples, first explorers, settlers, miners, ranchers, lawmen, legislators, entertainers, business leaders and those who sought fortune at the hands of Lady Luck unfold in Nevada’s oldest state museum. Exhibits detail some of the unmatched technological wonders created to tame this wild land.
The Shepperson Gallery features five interpretive areas containing permanent exhibitions that tell the compelling stories of how people have lived, worked, and played in Nevada from the earliest times to the present.
And history is at your fingertips in the Nevada Historical Society's research library, which offers one of the most extensive photographic and research collections in the West. The library is a major repository of books, manuscripts, photographs, maps, pamphlets, newspapers, serials, films and ephemera that document the Silver State’s rich history.
