In 1991, the Nevada Commission for Cultural Affairs was created to oversee the preservation of the state's historic buildings and the conversion of the best of them for use as cultural centers. Nevada's Historic Buildings highlights 90 of these buildings, setting them into the context of the state's history and the character of the people who created and inhabited them. The selections reflect the innovation of early settlers struggling to make a home in an austere environment, as well as the diversification over time of Nevada's economy and population. These buildings are reminders of mining boomtowns, historic ranches, the transportation industry, the divorce and gaming industries, the New Deal and other federal programs, the prosperity of the last half of the twentieth century, and the innovations of Las Vegas's postmodern aesthetic. Their stories reflect the people and events that shaped Nevada. Book jacket.

Nevada has changed dramatically over the past quarter century, and in this third edition of The Silver State, renowned historian James W. Hulse recounts the major events - historical, political, and social - that have shaped our state. Hulse's cohesive and readable approach offers students and general readers an accessible account of Nevada's colorful history. The new edition highlights the social and political changes that have occurred since the original publication of The Silver State in 1991. Hulse discusses the impact of a growing population; changes in the economy and educational system; expanding roles of women; recent developments in state politics, including the 2003 legislative session; the influence of Nevada's growing ethnic population and increasingly divergent demographic groups; and the impact of federal policies, including President George W. Bush's 2002 decision to authorize the opening of a nuclear-waste repository at Yucca Mountain. In addition, all the recommended-reading lists have been updated. The Silver State explores many dimensions of the Nevada experience and its peoples - from the prehistoric Anasazi Indians to the creators of extravagant casinos on the Las Vegas Strip; from duststained Comstock miners to the state's contemporary and very cosmopolitan Sunbelt population. This book will inspire readers to take another look at the rich cultural heritage and eventful history of Nevada, the Silver State.
