Also see . . . New Amended Text for Marker. The Nevada State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) recently updated the text of the roughly 260 state historical markers in Nevada. The Nevada SHPO placed the amended text of each individual marker on its website and will change the actual markers in the field as funding allows. The marker was amended to add, "Another fire in 1902 stimulated the plan to move to a new site." The link will take you to the Nevada SHPO page for the marker with the amended text.
