These truly NV sites and structures could disappear

Goldfield school, built when city was Nevada’s largest – when LV barely existed – crumbles due to neglect.

The executive director of the non-profit Preserve Nevada will speak to the audience at the Friends’ 6 p.m. Thursday (July 19) meeting about historical landmarks throughout the state that are at risk of disappearing.

Director Shae Smith, who is a doctoral candidate in public history at UNLV, will discuss how and which important sites and structures that are Nevadans’ heritage, are endangered by varying forces including erosion, real-estate development, overuse or vandalism by recreational enthusiasts, or lack of physical maintenance.
