Happy Birthday NHS

Who doesn’t love a Birthday party? Come celebrate with NHS with a special celebration on the legacy of the organization. The event will be held in the front lawn and parking lot with living history and educational groups with historical demonstrations and great information about the many organizations that support history and education for Reno and Nevada. Inside the museum, docents will talk about artifacts and history and answer any questions.

The event also includes a special lecture on local historian, Dr. Jeanne Elizabeth Wier, by Dr. Su Kim Chung, Head of Special Collections Public Services, University Libraries at UNLV. This FREE event would not be complete without a birthday cake!

This is a rain or shine event, and some activities will be moved inside in the case of inclement weather.
