From Nevada Today
As part of its 146th birthday, the City of Reno announced the development and completion of a new Reno Historical App, a free digital application that puts Reno history at a user's fingertips. Developed by Special Collections & University Archives at the University of Nevada, Reno's Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center, the mobile app provides an interpretive view of the city through the past 146 years.
The app allows users to explore the people, places and moments that have shaped the city. In addition to learning about the history of Reno through layered, map-based, multimedia presentations, users can also experience curated historical tours of the city, including an entire tour focused on the University campus.
