How To Find The Nevada Historical Society







The NHS is located on the north side of the University of Nevada Reno campus, north of Lawlor Events Center (15th St.) and adjoining the Fleischmann Planetarium located on 16th Street. The Society is located in the green and copper building with diamond-shaped windows. Our parking is located on the side of our building. If there are no spaces available, we can give you a temporary parking permit to park in any of the available UNR parking permit spaces around our building.
