Aren’t you tired of hearing we have no history? So are we.

“Old buildings are like memories you can touch.” – Mary DeNadai, architect

NPF Mission

Preserve

Our primary goal is to preserve and revitalize historic buildings, communities and places in Las Vegas and around the great state of Nevada. We work with a variety of stakeholders in accomplishing this mission, including property owners, residents, neighborhoods, developers, cultural heritage organizations, educational institutions and public officials. Retention and restoration of our built environment fosters not only a sense of place but also helps to build an engaged community.

Educate

Preservation is not possible without education. It is our strongest tool. We need to understand what we are preserving and the benefits of preservation before we can be advocates. We provide educational events and opportunities throughout the year in order to foster a greater understanding of Nevada’s cultural legacy and the need to preserve it. We offer a variety of programs including films, lectures, heritage tours, community events, social meets ups, monthly newsletters and volunteer opportunities.

Advocate

We rely on a range of strategies in order to advocate for the preservation of historic buildings and places. There is no universal approach to advocacy. Each situation requires a unique plan and approach. It involves the work of many, and issues can often take years to resolve. Our efforts include responding to specific threats, assisting property owners and residents with historic designation, educating our community and professionals in preservation practices and supporting stronger preservation policies and incentives.
