Nevada Historical Society presents Artown Tuesday: Nevada Military Women with Ret. Lt. Col. Anne Davis
Nevada Historical Society presents at Artown 2021 with Washoe County Library System.
The Nevada Historical Society (NHS) has actively participated in Artown since 2014, with NHS Docents offering gallery tours and history presentations during July. So, you may ask, What about the COVID-19 pandemic with everything closed and/or social distancing and masks required? Washoe County Library System has come to the rescue and NHS history presentations will take place virtually every Tuesday afternoon in July at 3:00 p.m.
Check the Artown website for details. We hope to whet your appetite for Nevada History!
