Reno Historical is a free digital application that puts Reno history at your fingertips.
Developed by the Special Collections Department at the University of Nevada-Reno Library, Reno Historical is a mobile application that provides an interpretive view of the city’s history. Search for interesting people, places, and events in Reno history and enjoy curated tours of the city. Each point on the interactive GPS-enabled map includes historical information about the site, with historic images from Special Collections, the Nevada Historical Society, and other top historical collections. Many sites also include audio clips and short documentary videos based on the University of Nevada Oral History Program’s collection of interviews.
The Reno Historical app is a collaborative project with content provided by teachers, students, professors, and community members and curated by an editorial board comprised of knowledgeable local history experts. Partners and supporters include: the Nevada Historical Society, Nevada Humanities, the Historic Reno Preservation Society, the City of Reno, the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC), the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Institute for Museum and Library Services.
