Nevada State Historic Preservation Office

The State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) encourages the preservation, documentation, and use of cultural resources through state and federal programs.  The agency works to educate the public about the importance of our cultural heritage so that Nevada’s historic and archaeological properties are preserved, interpreted, and reused for their economic, educational, and intrinsic values and for future generations to appreciate.
