In 1991, Nevada's Commission for Cultural Affairs was created to oversee the preservation of the state's historic buildings and the conversion of the best of them for use as cultural centers. Working closely with local groups and drawing on both public and private resources, this program has rehabilitated dozens of historic structures treasured by their communities for the ways they represent the development of the state and its culture. Nevada's Historic Buildings highlights 90 of these buildings, describing them in the context of the state's history and the character of the people who created and used them. Nevadans themselves had a say in which buildings were picked.
