To coincide with it, and also to mark Nevada's sesquicentennial year, the non-profit organization Preserve Nevada has just released a list of 150 buildings and sites from around the state that it deems to be significant in terms of historic preservation.

This segment comes to us as part of Nevada's Hidden Stories, an occasional series that brings to light the unique people, places, and communities that make Nevada the place we call home.

Nevada's Hidden Stories is produced by Rachel Hopkin and Nevada Humanities with generous support by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
