Reno, Nevada
By  | 

A nonprofit group associated with the National Trust for Historic Preservation says 11 Nevada historical places are in danger of being lost to development.

"Preserve Nevada" lists the crumbling Moulin Rouge in Las Vegas -- built in 1955 as the city's first racially integrated casino -- and also cites railroad cottages built in the city in the early 20th century.

Also listed are native petroglyph sites in southern Nevada, the 1905 Virginia Street Bridge in Reno, and Goldfield High School, built in 1907.

The organization says the 1883 Mineral County Courthouse in Hawthorne and the 1871 Million Dollar Courthouse in Pioche are worth saving.

It also points to Main Street in Tonopah, the 1927 Silver State Lodge in Reno, and the Stewart Indian School, built in 1897 in Carson City, The Nevada Northern Railway complex, built in 1905 in Ely, rounds out the list.
