Walking Tours

HRPS walking tours are a mainstay of the organization. In fact, HRPS was founded after a tour of the Lander and Humboldt Streets in 1997.

Walking Tour Guests in front of the NCO building 2007Historic Reno Preservation Society (HRPS) offers walking tours during the months of May (Historic Preservation Month), June, July (Artown), and September. The tours are open to the public and to HRPS members. Tour cost is $10 per person, free to HRPS members.

Walks generally last from 1½ to 2 hours. It won't be 2 hours of walking, but it will be two hours of standing and walking. Wear comfortable walking shoes and bring a bottle of water for those hot days of summer.

No dogs please. Reservations required and space is limited.

You can make reservations and find more information about each of the tours on this website (choose Tours Walking Tours Month Calendar from the menue above) or call 775-747-4478. Please be aware that the HRPS phone is answered by volunteers; we try to answer the phone once every 24 hours.

Please plan adequate time to find parking space prior to the walking tour. Tours that begin downtown and in residential areas may require parking a distance from the start of the tour.

ADA Compliance Statement

The Historic Reno Preservation Society (HRPS) is committed to making its programs accessible to as many individuals as possible. Access to HRPS Walking Tours varies according to venue. At the current time, certain areas may not be fully accessible to individuals with disabilities due to architectural barriers inherent in the historic construction of the structures or uneven walking surfaces. Since HRPS is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization, we will do our best to address all reasonable accommodations with our limited resources. If you have any questions, please call 775-747-4478 in advance. Nevada Relay TTY customers, please call 711.
