Two Nevada Fire Stations listed in the National Register of Historic Places

CARSON CITY, Nev. – Today, the National Park Service (NPS) listed the Ely City Hall and Fire Station
in Ely, and the Pioche Fire House in Pioche in the National Register of Historic Places. The NPS also
approved Fire Stations of Nevada, a special report on historic fire stations in Nevada produced by the
Nevada State Historic Preservation Office. The report, called a multiple property documentation form
(MPDF), provides a history of firefighting and fire station architecture in Nevada, and establishes
registration requirements for historic fire stations, making it easier for community members to nominate
their eligible fire stations to the National Register. The National Register is the nation’s official list of
places worthy of preservation, recognizing important places and potentially qualifying them for certain
grants and tax incentives.
