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.
