the lear theater – reno

On Monday, I made a trip to downtown Reno to scout out the location for the Maker Faire which will be held on June 7th. Part of the draw to the location of the faire is the  Lear Theater and TEDx Reno event the day before. Reno is in the process of a huge rebirth and many local businesses, groups and projects are making strides to redevelop the Biggest Little City.

As I took this photo a group of women approached me from Reno Historical  and we began talking about a new app they have created showing all sorts of historical buildings around Reno. This really intrigued me as the neighborhood my husband and I moved from in Chicago was on the National Registry and I truly believe that the roots of a community begin in its history and especially in its architectural history.

The name of the app is Reno Historical and it is now available in the app store for free. I downloaded it on the spot was amazed at the number of buildings already listed.

Have a great Thursday everyone.
