The State Archives program preserves the records that document the history of Nevada State government dating back to 1851. It has custody over the historical records of the territory and state as defined in state statute, representing the three branches of government: executive, legislative, and judicial. There are more than 15,000 cubic feet of territorial and state government records and over 100,000 images of Nevada people and places, providing visual information that complements the Archives' documentation of Nevada history.

      Archives Month 2016

      As Nevada celebrates another Archives Month, the Nevada State Archives is assisting in the efforts to help Nevadans embrace our past as we look to the future. There are many Archives in Nevada, just as there are many libraries, but unlike libraries each archives is unique because each preserves a different history. The state archives documents state government, county recorders and clerks keep the county archives, city clerks maintain city archives, and even Native American tribal government has a secretary and enrollment clerk to keep the tribal archives. Universities, museums, historical societies, and libraries also keep archives in special collections about their communities.
