The Historic Reno Preservation Society (HRPS), in its 25th year as an all-volunteer organization, strives to preserve and promote the history of the Truckee Meadows. HRPS offered Walking Tours and Speaker Programs and, starting in 2010, a Fall Home Tour, where many Reno residents opened their historic homes to the public. HRPS writes about Reno’s historic properties and advocates for their preservation. With the pandemic, HRPS turned to virtual Neighborhood Stories and Speaker Programs. This presentation will describe HRPS activities, a few great books on Reno and Nevada history, and other historical organizations that you should know about.
