The Verdi History Preservation Society, Inc. is made up of local residents who are passionate about preserving and sharing the unique and pivotal history of Verdi while showcasing Verdi’s many historical contributions to both adjacent and remote area communities.
In 2002, with the support of the Verdi Community Library, the Verdi History Preservation Society (VHPS) began collecting, cataloging, and organizing a treasure trove of artifacts, photographs, and written histories, that speak to the richness of Verdi and its important role in local commerce and the development and expansion of the Truckee Meadows and other local communities in the area. We now have over 85 books that contain a rich assortment of historical photos as well as stories of some of the earliest Verdi families. As we continue our efforts to collect and preserve Verdi area history, our collection of historical artifacts will continue to grow.
The Verdi History Center, located at 740 Second Street in Verdi, NV, has several displays with artifacts, books and photographs. The Center is currently open to the public by appointment only. Appointments can also be made by contacting us at 1-775-345-0173 or by using our contact form.
If you are interested in Verdi’s history or have information or photos to share, we can make copies and return the original to you. Items donated to the History Center will be carefully preserved and well cared for.
