How you helpHRPS started in 1997 with some people interested in Reno's history—and we have been an all-volunteer group ever since. We exist and accomplish so much because of the commitment of more than 150 volunteers annually. There's always room for more volunteers! HRPS has volunteer opportunities to meet all needs and interest levels: Occasional time? Volunteers are especially needed for events such as the Reno Harvest of Homes Tour every fall or to welcome people at our summer walking tours. Ready to make a big commitment? We're always happy to talk to people about becoming new tour leaders, writing well-researched articles for FootPrints, to advocate for preservation and to provide specific skills in public relations, law, finance, etc.
About usTo celebrate Historic Preservation Week of May 1997, Pat Ferraro Klos led more than 50 participants on a walking tour of the Humboldt and Lander Street neighborhoods. Twenty-five of these walkers, appetites whetted by this brief taste of history, gathered afterwards at My Favorite Muffin to discuss creating an organization dedicated to preserving Reno's past. The result of this meeting of minds was the creation of the Historic Reno Preservation Society. The first slate of officers were: President Pat Klos, Vice President Cindy Ainsworth, Secretary Sandy Saunders, and Treasurer Holly Young. HRPS filed its Articles of Incorporation in February 1998. Bylaws were approved in September 1998 and in December 1999 it was granted tax-exempt status as a 501(c)3 organization.
