ZoAnn Campana: The Newlands District

A Fine Example of a Newlands Neighborhood Home

In 1889, Francis Newlands built his residence on a sagebrush-choked bluff overlooking the Truckee River. In the decades following, Senator Newlands and his real estate company laid out a series of subdivisions featuring picturesque landscapes, winding boulevards, and a mix of vernacular and high-style residences. These subdivisions are known collectively as the Newlands neighborhood, which has remained a jewel of community planning and design in Reno since its earliest development in the 1890s. Architectural historian ZoAnn Campana recently completed a historic resources survey and National Register nomination for the Newlands Heights Historic District in old Southwest Reno and will be sharing her findings. ZoAnn is an architectural historian and historic preservation consultant in Northern Nevada.
