Historically Incorrect - Nevada's Roadside Markers
Historically Incorrect - Nevada's Roadside Markers

Listen
AIR DATE: March 1, 2012

Roadside markers were placed across the state during the 1970s to show where historic buildings once stood. These site markers were often written by people with little  historical training and reflected conventional wisdom of locals about the history of the site. And two generations later, these markers appear to be insensitive and often historically wrong. The Nevada State Historical Preservation Office is slowly planning on correcting them and the historical preservation boss will tell us how.
