  1. Like the technology and innovation that built the famed BMI plant in Henderson in the 1940s to produce much-needed magnesium for the war effort, the HHS harnesses the power of modern Internet technology. HHS is exclusively an online, virtual historical society. This gives the HHS greater flexibility and reach while still allowing for traditional fundraising, town tours, and outreach events that engage the public in real-time. A non-profit 501 (c)(3) corporation, the Henderson Historical Society is committed to sharing and preserving Henderson’s heritage. Mission Statement: The Henderson Historical Society seeks to foster public awareness and pride and to preserve the history of Henderson, Nevada for future generations. http://hendersonhistoricalsociety.org/ Like this View full record

  9. Most of the people who’ve ever lived in Las Vegas are still alive. But not forever. Their historically relevant photos need to be displayed, and their stories need to be told publicly and recorded before they are gone. Thus is the genesis of the Las Vegas Historical Society. We’ve begun gathering photos, written and oral histories of Las Vegas’ history. In addition to preserving and recording Las Vegas history, we are also dedicated to integrating our collections and universal concepts into award-winning exhibitions that demonstrate the significant influence of Las Vegas history in our present lives. Our exhibitions and public programming are designed to teach, challenge, and ultimately inspire how you think and learn about Las Vegas’s short rich history and diverse cultures, past and present. The Las Vegas Historical Society is in downtown Las Vegas accessible by mass transportation and within walking distance of many of Las Vegas’ downtown cultural attractions, including the Smith Center for the Performing Arts, and more! http://lasvegashistoricalsociety.org/ View full record
