Nevada’s Most Endangered places list
June 8, 2014
Using the model of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Preserve Nevada has released its biannual "Most Endangered Places List."
In honor of Nevada's Sesquicentennial celebration, the non-profit dedicated to the preservation of Nevada's cultural, historical, and archeological heritage, has selected more than 150 locations across the state to promote. Each site was identified as a preservation success, loss, or endangered location.
Preserve Nevada hopes its "Eleven Most" list of successes, endangered and lost will be a way to appeal to the state's natives and newcomers to rally around the history and preserve at least a piece of the past for future generations.
Successes include: Buildings 100 and 200, US Bureau of Reclamation campus, Boulder City; Morelli House, Las Vegas; Foreman's House at Floyd Lamb Park, Tule Springs; Fourth Ward School, Virginia City; Mizpah Hotel, Tonopah.
Endangered includes: The Victory Hotel, Las Vegas; Reno Mercantile/Masonic Lodge No. 13; Nye County Courthouse, Tonopah.
Lost Includes; Moulin Rouge Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas; Mapes Hotel, Reno; Charles Clinton Stone Row House, Tonopah.
