NoeHill Travels in Nevada contains photographs of historic sites and points of interest in Nevada, including those listed by the National Register of Historic Places and the Nevada State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO).

The SHPO website contains an announcement that is all to familiar everywhere in our country today:

Nevada has over 260 roadside markers that bring visitors' attention to Nevada's heritage. In 1967, the Nevada State Legislature initiated the marker program....but due to budget cuts in 2009 the program has become dormant: new markers will not be installed and markers threatened by vandals and the environment are not likely to be repaired.

If you were directed to this page by a search engine or other external link, you can learn more about the mission of our website at NoeHill Travels in the Golden West.

Following the convention of the National Register of Historic Places and the Nevada SHPO, we have grouped the photographs by county.
