Reno Historical

Reno Historical, which is managed by Special Collections at the University of Nevada, Reno Libraries, is a mobile app and website that is chock full of historical essays, images, facts, and photos of the Biggest Little City in the World. On the homepage, readers will find essays on the building boom of 1946, the historical churches of Reno, and virtual tours of local hot spots like the historic riverfront and the University of Nevada. The Stories tab is another great way to experience this website. Within its folds are 140 stories about Reno's history, including tales about the car dealerships and mechanic shops that once lined South Virginia Street, the Barnes Radio Service that once ruled the Reno airwaves, and the classic Sewell's Supermarket. Readers may also download the Reno Historical app for iOS or Android devices to "put Reno at your fingertips."
