Online Nevada Encyclopedia

The Online Nevada Encyclopedia (ONE) is a multimedia educational resource produced by Nevada Humanities that incorporates articles, images, and interactive media to explore the landscape, people, and events that have shaped the Silver State’s politics, economy, and culture. The ONE is Nevada’s primary online resource about the state’s history and contemporary culture. The ONE is widely used by teachers in K‐12 classrooms to bring our history to young people, as well as by the general public. More than 250,000 people consult the ONE each year.

Nevada is a state developed by mining and ranching industries, with a casino history that includes major mafia figures, but it was first a place of rich Native American development and heritage. Nevada is home to a tradition of significant religious settlements, a place where Samuel Clemens acquired his nom de plume “Mark Twain,” and where major civil rights battles have been fought. It is a state with natural pyramids and otherworldly vistas, and where visitors can see one of the few living links to the Ice Age in the local species of pronghorn.

The ONE  offers its audience the opportunity to investigate these topics through a variety of mediums—articles, stories, videos, poetry, slideshows, then and now morphs, 360-degree panoramas, audio, primary resources, and more.
