Preservation Services

Encouraging the appreciation, identification, and preservation of places important to Nevada's past.

Preservation Services

The State Historic Preservation Office's Services Team is available to guide and assist the general public, non-profits, as well as local, state, and federal agencies in the preservation of Nevada’s past. Archaeological sites, historic buildings, districts and landscapes, all collectively known as cultural resources, are identified in the Nevada Cultural Resource Inventory System (NVCRIS) and may be registered in the National and State Registers.  Archaeological sites are monitored and protected by volunteers through the Site Steward program.  The Services team also provides access to grants for the funding of cultural centers (Commission for Cultural Centers and Historic Preservation) as well as funding for Certified Local governments (CLGs) to manage their resources at the local level. We also provide guidance and expertise on HistoricTax Credits

We encourage the community to make use of our services to ensure these amazing places remain for future generations to enjoy.
