Architectural Records Collection and Search
In the mid-1980s the Special Collections Department established the Nevada Architectural Archives. Its purpose is to collect the architectural drawings and other records of significant Nevada architects and architectural firms. The basis of the NAA are the drawings of Frederic J. DeLongchamps, considered to be Nevada's preeminent architect. Among the other architects represented in the NAA are Edward S. Parsons, Hewitt Wells, and Raymond Hellman.
Search the Architectural Records Database
The Architectural Records Database contains information about selected architectural drawings in the Nevada Architectural Archives that are cataloged, processed, and available for use. Physical copies of the drawings can be accessed in the Special Collections Department of the UNR Library.
Fill in one or more boxes and click Search. For the most comprehensive results use broad search terms, e.g. McCarthy, not McCarthy house; use Reno, not Plumas Street. This is because the street name may have changed or is not included in the record.
