Re-Discover Nevada 2000

This project highlights six Nevada "territories" through words and images: Reno/Tahoe Territory which borders the scenic eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada mountain range; Las Vegas Territory, home to the most exciting city in Clark County and world-renown for its gambling and entertainment; Pony Express Territory, home to Great Basin National Park and U.S. Highway 50, the Loneliest Road in America; Cowboy County, famous for trailblazers, wagon trains, cattle drives and poetry gatherings; Pioneer Territory, the south central heartland of Nevada and home to the newly designated Extraterrestrial Highway; Indian Territory, a territory without geographic borders which celebrates the ancient and rich cultures of Nevada's native American tribes.

Originally submitted by: Harry Reid, Senator Richard H. Bryan, Senator Shelley Berkeley, Representative (1st District) & Jim Gibbons, Representative (2nd District).
