Public Records Requests
Requests for public records consistent with the State of Nevada's Public Records statutes (NRS 239) for public books and public records not determined to be confidential will be made available for public view or copy. Requests must be submitted in writing to determine if a public record exists with SHPO and to inspect or copy the physical file.
For your convenience, the SHPO has made most National and State Register nomination forms for individual places and districts available in PDF format through the Historic Places map page.
If you are requesting inventory information, please contact NVCRIS (Nevada Cultural Resource Inventory System) at
File requests should be made in reference to specific materials or actions and directed to the Public Records Officer listed below:

Carson City NV 89701
Phone: (775) 684-3445

Upon receipt of the request, the Public Records Officer will forward it to the appropriate SHPO employee. A response will be sent advising whether or not files exist and, if the employee has the files, specific information will be sent in regard to making arrangements to view the files or obtain copies.
